Pro familia mori ?

 History is a testament to the inevitability of the rise and fall of cultures.

Those falling resort to military conflict - or just disappear.
Where conflict arises, survival is determined by many factors, but passionate commitment to a group is the most important.

Apart from a gallant but underappreciated few, most Australians born since 1930 have had a dream run.

Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori - (Ode 3 -Horace)
Dulce et Decorum est - (Wilfred Owen)

I wonder whether there are many Australian's left who Pro Patria Mori, or even Pro Publica Mori, or even Pro Familia Mori ???

Would capitulation bring peace ?
