The Crux of the Matter

Expressing dismay at the way ideals are marginalized, while brutality and darkness are stoicly accepted in the name of realism, Jeanne at Body and Soul does not shy away from stating the obvious in one beautiful post from her beautiful weblog:
Pacifists have never gotten much respect, but one of the most depressing things of the past four years has been the way they've been completely shut out of the conversation. I'm not an absolute pacifist, mainly because I'm not an absolute anything. But I know that pacifists are more often right than wrong, and, more important, that they ask the most important question: Is there another way?

" Is there another way?"

i beat that one like a drum. trouble is, it requires heavy lifting of the grey matter, and does not please the instant gratification crowd.
