Reader comments about this quote:
An extremely sad reality. The most current, Mr. Obamunist Goodwrench the assassin's diplomat war on the individual free sovereigns of the States united will probably end up in a soldier finish. The camps are built and, myriads of soldiers (from local police to an almost innumerable cabal of alphabet soup agencies' armed thugs) are being trained and outfitted.

    A reminder of old Neville Chamberlain and his deal with Adolph Hitler.

    "War is the health of the State. It automatically sets in motion throughout society these irresistible forces for uniformity, for passionate cooperation with the government in coercing into obedience the minority groups and individuals which lack the larger herd sense." - Randolph Bourne
     -- E Archer, NYC     
    "Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, IT IS THE LEADERS of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the 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. That is easy. All you have to do is TELL THEM THEY ARE BEING ATTACKED, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. IT WORKS THE SAME IN ANY COUNTRY." --Goering at the Nuremberg Trials
