Wendell Berry on Peacableness Toward Enemies

Wendell Berry, in his essay Peacableness Toward Enemies, Some Notes on the Gulf War from Sex, Economy, Freedom & Community, was prophetic during a time of rampant nationalistic excess in 1991. His essay is even more profound and timely during our present conflict in the Middle East. I am giving you a few quotes from this prophetic essay, but recommend you reading the entire thing, if you have the time and inclination.
