For me, humanitarian service, or rather service of all that lives, is religion. And I draw no distinction between such religion and politics.
The humanitarian would, of course, have us meddle in foreign affairs as part of his program of world service.
He was a great patriot, a humanitarian, a loyal friend; provided, of course, he really is dead.
Service ist kein Selbstzweck.
Service to society is the rent we pay for living on this planet.
