|"I know men and I tell you that Jesus Christ is
no mere man. Between Him and every other person in the world there
is no possible term of comparison. Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne,
and I have founded empires. But on what did we rest the creation of
our genius? Upon force. Jesus Christ founded His empire upon love;
and at this hour millions of men would die for Him."
|"I have found Christian dogma unintelligible.
Early in life I absented myself from Christian assemblies."
|"We were convinced that the people needs and
requires this faith. We have therefore undertaken the fight against
the atheistic movement, and that not merely with a few theoretical
declarations: we have stamped it out."

considered as citizens, nor should they be considered patriots. This

- "The Government, being resolved to undertake the
political and moral purification of our public life, are
creating and securing the conditions necessary for a really
profound revival of religious life....
- The National Government regards the two Christian Confessions
as the weightiest factors for the maintenance of our
nationality. They will respect the agreements concluded between
them and the federal States. Their rights are not to be
- It will be the Government's care to maintain honest
co-operation between Church and State; the struggle against
materialistic views and for a real national community is just as
much in the interest of the [German] nation as in that of the
welfare of our Christian faith."
Said it?: Adolf Hitler
|"What you should say to outsiders is that a
Christian has neither more nor less rights in our Association than
an atheist. When our platform becomes too narrow for people of all
creeds and of no creeds, I myself shall not stand upon it."

"The trouble is that when American dollars
earn only six percent over here, they get restless and go overseas
to get 100 percent. The flag follows the dollar and the soldiers
follow the flag.
I wouldn’t go to war again as I have done to
defend some lousy investment of the bankers. We should fight only
for the defense of our home and the Bill of Rights. War for any
other reason is simply a racket.
There isn’t a trick in the racketeering bag
that the military gang is blind to. It had its ‘finger
men’ to point out enemies, its ‘muscle men’ to destroy
enemies, its ‘brain men’ to plan war preparations and a ‘Big
Boss’ — supernationalistic capitalism.
I spent 33 years in the Marines. Most of my time
being a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and
the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer for capitalism.
I helped purify Nicaragua for the international
banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912. I helped make Mexico
and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I
brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests
in 1916. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the
National City Bank boys to collect revenue in. I helped in the rape
of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall

|“We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of
the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the
world — no longer a Government of free opinion, no longer a
Government by conviction and vote of the majority, but a Government
by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men.”

|"We have the greatest opportunity the world has
ever seen, as long as we remain honest — which will be as long as
we can keep the attention of our people alive. If they once become
inattentive to public affairs, you and I, and Congress and
Assemblies, judges and governors would all become wolves."
President Thomas Jefferson
|"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 to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the
pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger."

|"Every gun that is made, every warship launched,
every rocket signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who
hunger and are not fed, from those who are cold and are not clothed.
The world in arms is not spending money alone. It
is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists,
the hopes of its children."
