"Naturally, the common people don't want war, but after all, it
is the leaders of a country who determine the policy...Voice or no
voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.

attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and
exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country."
