To have profitable peace with your franchisor, you better be preparing for war.
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.
War against a foreign country only happens when the moneyed classes think they are going to profit from it.
We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.
