Reflection on Peace & War
So I was reading War and the Law of Nations, a General History by Stephen Neff and I got this paragraph:
Is it better that war be sharply cut off in a legal sense from peace, and ruled by principles that are, as it were, tailor-made for it? Or is it preferable to dissolve all barriers between war and peace to the greatest extent possible, to live in a single, undifferentiated legal and moral world at all times? In other words, it may be wondered whether war should be a distinct legal institution, as in the nineteenth century; or whether it should be seen as an aberration in a monolithic state of peace.
What do you think about this in the frame of nowadays conflictse.g.Ukraine, Gaza Stripe, Iraq etc. ?
