Pacifism is objectively pro-fascist. This is elementary common sense. If you hamper the war effort of one side, you automatically help out that of the other. Nor is there any real way of remaining outside such a war as the present one. In practice, ‘he that is not with me is against me.’
If you turn the other cheek, you will get a harder blow on it than you got on the first one. This does not always happen, but it is to be expected, and you ought not to complain if it does happen.
Whoever is winning at the moment will always seem to be invincible.
And a new favourite: They had their cynical code worked out. The public are swine; advertising is the rattling of a stick inside a swill-bucket.
