The Common People Don’t Want War

“Naturally 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 tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same for every country.” Hermann Goering. Hitler’s Reich-Marshall at the Nuremberg Trials
Think of all the dead husbands, wives, sons, and daughters.
We fall for it every time…since the beginning of time. All is vanity
