That there is honor or nobility in going to war. So many have needlessly perished fighting for lies or worthless causes. It's very sad.

karma doesn't necessarily come around in this lifetime, they will volunteer to be incarnated to experience that which they did to others. You can also be rewarded in the next life for following God's law.

...and they all lived happily ever after.

It is noteworthy that all the classic fairy tales end on that note... "They all lived happily ever after." Perhaps it's a hint of a belief in Universal Salvation and the ages to come.

And I'll pile on about religion. The myth that being religious makes one a good person. No, it usually just makes us narrow, opiated and self satisfied.
I agree with you on both points.

I thought the saying was that "idle HANDS are the devil's workshop". I think there is much wisdom in that saying. People who have nothing to occupy their time, especially young people, are more likely to wind up in some sort of trouble or dangerous situation.
