You’ll pretend you were men instead of babies, and you’ll be played in the movies by Frank Sinatra and John Wayne or some of those other glamorous, war-loving, dirty old men. And war will look just wonderful, so we’ll have a lot more of them, and they’ll be fought by babies like the babies upstairs.

Kurt Vonnegut
Slaughterhouse-Five (1969)
