Some advice from Uncle Screwtape...

"Let him begin by treating the Patriotism or the Pacifism as a part of his religion. Then let him, under the influence of partisan spirit, come to regard it as the most important part. Then quietly and gradually nurse him on to the stage at which the religion becomes merely part of the "cause", in which Christianity is valued chiefly because of the excellent arguments it can produce in favour of the British war-effort or of Pacifism."

-Uncle Screwtape, to his nephew, a junior demon named Wormwood, so as to advise him on methods of securing the damnation of an earthly man. The Screwtape Letters, C.S. Lewis
