Denounce the Peacemakers

“Naturally the common people don’t want war… But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along....the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them that they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.”

-- Nazi Reich Marshall Herman Goering at his Nuremberg War Crimes Trial

Thanks, apple head, for suggesting I watch Hijacking Catastrophe.
