Is war inevitable? That question has been put to professionals from all backgrounds in the new Brian Lehrer Show series "End of War," which questions the conventional wisdom behind explanations for mass violence. Celeste sat down with Brian Lehrer, host of our co-producer WNYC's "The Brian Lehrer Show," and John Horgan, author of "The End of War," to discuss what – if anything – can be done to stop future wars.

Guests:

John Horgan and Brian Lehrer

Produced by:

Hey there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where
I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having difficulty finding one?

Thanks a lot!

It is the soldier and not the pacifist or public radio that give us the freedom to wax lyrical about what will never be with preening moral superiority.
Just thank the American soldier and think of Syria representing the alternative.
If one is serious about ending war than start with taming rather than ignoring and excusing the violent Occupy protesters.

Given that this is supposed to be a day to memorialize soldiers killed and injured in war, it seems a bit oxymoronic to say "Happy" Memorial Day

Mary told us at Fatima that 'War is the punishment for sin'. On another occasion Jesus told us that 'Mankind will not have peace until they turn to my Merciful Heart.'

If we don't learn virtue voluntarily, we will learn it through the deprivation and scourge of war. And there is no peace without God, who is the source of peace. So if you want peace, pray.

'A world at prayer is a world at peace.' Fr. Patrick Peyton, 1950s.
