The following quote was on the top of one of my syllabi for this semester. See if you can guess the author/decade.

"Naturally, the common people don't want war, but after all, it is the leaders of a country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the 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 they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country."
