Starship Troopers - Robert Heinlein

This quote was added by user439719
Anyone who clings to the historically untrue - and thoroughly immoral - doctrine that "violence never settles anything," I would advise to conjure up the ghosts of Napoleon Bonaparte and of the Duke of Wellington and let them debate it. The ghost of Hitler could referee, and the jury might well be the Dodo, the Great Auk, and the Passenger Pigeon. Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst.
