Here's Owen Strachan echoing Victor Davis Hanson on why military history is necessary. I think it's a useful topic, but it appears that my harmless views on violence have now earned me the distinguished title of "culture-throttling pacifist." Is that kind of like being a peace-mongerer? If so, I rather like it. Maybe I should get some T-shirts made.

Is a peace-mongerer kind of like a peace-maker? :) Just remember that your views are never harmless to those that disagree with you if you act on them. Nobody ever died for the sake of war itself, but the idea behind the war. The ideas, being the motivation, are the dangerous part. Not always bad, obviously, but possibly dangerous.
