There is only one good, knowledge and one evil, ignorance -Socrates
One of the penalties of refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors -Plato
The most perfect political community is one in which the middle class is in control and out numbers both of the other classes -Aristotle
Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefor whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. Therefor one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience.
The Geneva Conventions are four treaties the first of which was adopted at an international conference in 1864, that set international legal standards regarding humanitarian matters, especially concerning the treatment of non – combatants and prisoners of war during war time. The Geneva Conventions are the foundation of modern humanitarian law. (1949,1977)
