From the More Things Change Dept:

“Why, of course, the people don’t want war. Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece. Naturally, the common people don’t want war… 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. …(V)oice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. 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 pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.”

These words of wisdom come from which of the following people?

  • W. George Bush?
  • John Ashcroft?
  • Colin Powell?
  • Dick Cheney?
  • or Hermann Goering?

I’d expand further on this, but the SS Department of Homeland Security may be monitoring this site.
