the slaughter of human beings temporarily regarded as enemies

“There can be no compromise with war; it cannot be reformed or
controlled; it cannot be disciplined into decency or codified
into common sense, for war is the slaughter of human beings,
temporarily regarded as enemies, on as large a scale as
possible.”

– Jeannette Rankin, first woman elected to the United States
House of Representatives and the first female member of
Congress, lifelong pacifist.
