Three weeks after he climbed out the kitchen window, the boy was outdoors with his cousins-teenagers like him-laying a picnic for dinner beneath the stars. It was then he would have heard the drones approaching, followed by the whiz of the missiles. It was a direct hit. The boy and his cousins were blown to pieces. All that remained of the boy was the back of his head, his flowing hair still clinging to it.

You are in a bunker in downtown Athens, binoculars propped up on sandbags. It is dawn. A medium-range missile attack is under way. Half a million Greeks are dead. Two missiles bracket the Parthenon. The next will surely be a hit. Between columns of smoke, a ray of golden light catches the portico.
Are you bored? Can you see the Parthenon?
Explain.

— Walker Percy

Millions of young people are shifting from one side to the other. They are like unguided missiles filled with energy and ambition and yet somehow not "fitting in." Peer pressure leads them astray ... [and] in thousands of churches they are led astray theologically.

— Billy Graham

In the beginning, we create the enemy. Before the weapon comes the image. We think others to death and then invent the battle-axe or ballistic missiles with which to actually kill them. Propaganda precedes technology.

— Sam Keen
