i don't think these are so separate. war outside reflects war inside. and the same could be said for peace.

without those moments of beauty and escape, how could we remain strong
enough to confront the horror of our contemporary society, how could
we manage to go on resisting and fighting?

there are also beauties in our contemporary society. they don't get any press, but if you look around carefully, i am sure you can find some. also, some people fight on even when they have no hope of escape. not many, to be sure, but some.
