Law leads straight to war

We talk about peace as a result of law, and I find that highly entertaining; as soon as there is one speck of law somewhere on the earth, it's not peace, it's war. Law does not make peace, it makes war.

Charles Péguy, during the 2nd International Conference at The Hague, 1907.
