This reached me through a friend in Brazil. No comments.

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders
of
the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter
to
drag the people along whether it's a democracy, 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 pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the
country
to greater danger."
