The WELL: John Robb on War, Peace, and Resilient Communities
"My students were former child soldiers. Let me say that after the
schools had been out of business for more than 10 years, say starting
around 1990, the wars were more like Lord of the Flies with pickup
trucks, automatic rifles, light and heavy machineguns, and mortars...

"...Illiterate 20-somethings leading uneducated armed bands of teens and children across the countryside, enticed by rice and magic. And some drugs, it's true, but chiefly rice and magic. These were hungry children empowered by an AK-47 and some sadistic charismatic leaders.

"...Funny how quickly a new generation will believe in the power of magic in as few as 10 or 12 years after the schools close."
