quote...any similarities to what's going on today?
the common people don't want war, but after all, it is the
leaders of a country who determine the policy, and it is
always a simple matter to drag people along whether it is
a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament,
or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people
can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. This
is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being
attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism
and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in
Goering, at the Nuremberg Trials.
for listing this quote.
