“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself.

Not like we're seeing today, Kobie. There have probably always been rivalries between "tribes" since time began, but to deliberately set out to slaughter thousands of people you don't even know, other than in wars, is not normal behavior by any standards, IMO. Are people all at war with each other now worldwide? If so, how did that happen? When did it become acceptable to say "Death to America or Israel, or any other entire country, not to just a group within that country? Even in WW2, we didn't intend to obliterate the entire countries of Japan or Germany, just those who were fighting against us. What is the rationale for killing innocent people, as ISIS and other groups are doing?
