Yes I read Gone with the Wind. Here's an interesting quote from it that is oh so insightful to our current political climate:

"All wars are sacred. To those who have to fight them. If the people who started wars didn't make them sacred, who would be foolish enough to fight? But, no matter what rallying cries the orators give to the idiots who fight, no matter what noble purposes they assign to wars, there is never but one reason for a war. And that is money. All wars are in reality money squabbles. But so few people ever realize it. Their ears are too full of bugles and drums and fine words from stay-at-home orators..."

The speaker, is Rhett Butler.
