A few years ago, a Dutch professor took time to calculate the cost of an enemy soldier’s death at different times in history. He estimated that during the reign of Julius Caesar, it cost less than one dollar. It cost Napoleon, $2,000. At the end of the First World War, it cost $17,000. During the Second World War, it was about $40,000. And in Vietnam, in 1970, to kill one enemy soldier it cost the United States $200,000.

Hate is indeed expensive.
