This marble inscription is is a slightly edited version of Carl Von Clausewitz’s famous definition of War, namely that “War is a mere continuation of politics by other means”. In this inscription, some words have been removed to reduce the text to a more ambiguous phrase that could claim that anything, even the inscription itself, is a continuation of politics. Thus stressing the relation between our everyday actions and the inevitable political message they carry.
