"Naturally the common people don’t want <br />war. But after all, it is the <br />leaders of a country who determine <br />the policy, and it’s always a <br />simple matter to drag people <br />along whether it is a democracy or a <br />fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, <br />or a communist dictatorship. <br />Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of <br />the leaders. This is easy. All you have <br />to do is tell them they are <br />being attacked, and denounce the <br />pacifists for lack of patriotism and <br />for exposing the country to danger. <br />It works the same in every <br />country.” <br />--- Hermann Goering, Hitler’s Reich Marshall, <br />at the Nuremberg <br />
