True love ought to be give and take i.e. true love should be more of mutual concession/compromise. As a matter of fact, any love/relationship which is devoid of concession/compromise won't/can't last long.
Virtuous motives, trammeled by inertia and timidity, are no match for armed and resolute wickedness. A sincere love of peace is no excuse for muddling hundreds of millions of humble folk into total war. The cheers of the weak, well-meaning assemblies soon cease to count. Doom marches on.
