Italian Philosophers 4 Monica
top 6% overall

I am not Italian, but my email handle is a dig at Giulio Douhet, whose pet theory drop 300 tons of bombs on an enemy's capital and they will sue for peace was very influential in the 1930s and begat the Blitz, Dresden, Tokyo firebombings. Didn't work, but managed to make war even more inhumane than usual and rationalized mass killings of civilians by Western powers. Truly a detestable theory even if its intent was to avoid WW1 style static slaughter.
