Pioneering American Management Guru Mary Parker Follett had this to say about War in 1918.

“In making a plea for some experiment on international cooperation I remember, with humiliation, that we have fought because it is the easy way. Fighting solves no problems. The problems which brought on this war will all be there to be settled when the war ends. But we have war as the line of least resistance. We have war when the mind gives up its job of agreeing as too difficult… the effort of agreeing is so much more strenuous than the comparatively easy stunt of fighting.”
