With apologies to Francis Cornford

The Principle of International Law is that one should not act justly now, unless in concurrence with the representatives of the executive branches of the governments of the five permament members of the UN Security Council, who are disposed to agree on no matter other than the maintainance of this privileged position. All wars of choice either are wrong, or, if they are right, contravene International Law. It follows, then, that no man must ever be defended by armed force against the aggression of his own government, but must instead have recourse to a process known as Reforming the Dictatorship From Within.
