vara bungas: BALTDEFCOL autoru kolektīvs ģenerālmajora A.Dilāna vadībā paveica labu darbu tulkojot angļu valodā un rediģējot virkni ģenerāļa P.Radziņa rakstu. Tagad varēsim nepastarpināti iepazīstināt savus draugus un kolēģus ar mūsu karavadoņa domām, kas, esmu pārliecināts, citātu formā balstīs daudzu akadēmisko darbu pamatus.
VB kolektīvu lūdzu informēt ārzemniekus, kuri interesējās par militāro mākslu, ka viņiem tagad ir pieejamas 370 lapas teksta, kas ir pilns ar ļoti aktuālām pārdomām un novērojumiem par vēsturi, karu, morāli un armiju viena izcilā latvieša skatījumā.
“[..] When it comes to national morality, people tend to say that war as such is criminal and, therefore, unlawful. Pacifists (defenders of the idea of global peace) ask why someone who kills another person during peacetime is punished, but when a government sends thousands of people to slaughter thousands of people in another country, this slaughter is seen as heroism. This is empty babbling without any foundation. When someone attacks and kills someone else, the murder is very much different than a war. The murder is the will of a single individual, and that means that it is separate from and isolated from the will of others, and repulsive for the will, views and morality of other people and their organic or spiritual emotions. The killing of another person may have circumstances under which it is not murder, and so the person is exonerated by the courts and by all other people. This is not uncommon during times of peace. Not every killing can be compared to a murder. War involves a very different killing of other people, because that is done by nations. War is the will of an entire nation, not an individual. Common will is something higher ― the highest organic engine for development, based on the fact that the nation, as a global organism, has the right to demand the opportunity to live and exist. The demand to live and exist can in no sense be called immoral. [..]”
PS Mūsu AM savulaik atteica ģenerāļa P.Radziņa biedrībai finansējumu rakstu tulkošanai pamatojot, ka autors nav aktuāls un interesants šaurai vēsturnieku grupai…
