Bernard Baruch – In the midst of a cold war

Share this quote:
Bernard BaruchLet us not be deceived — we are today in the midst of a cold war. Our enemies are to be
found abroad and at home. Let us never forget this: Our unrest is the heart of their success. The peace of the world is the hope and the goal of our political system; it is the despair and
defeat of those who stand against us.

Douglas MacArthur – Today the guns are silent

Share this quote:
Douglas MacArthurToday the guns are silent. A great tragedy has ended. A great victory has been won. The skies no longer rain with death — the seas bear only commerce — men everywhere walk upright in the sunlight. The entire world lies quietly at peace. The holy mission has been completed. And in reporting this to you, the people, I speak for the thousands of silent lips, forever stilled among the jungles and the beaches and in the deep waters of the Pacific which marked the way.

Douglas MacArthur   (1880-1964)

Douglas MacArthur – Our country is now geared to an arms economy

Share this quote:
Douglas MacArthurIt is part of the general pattern of misguided policy that our country is now geared to an arms economy which was bred in an artificially induced psychosis of war hysteria and nurtured upon an incessant propaganda of fear. While such an economy may produce a sense of seeming prosperity for the moment, it rests on an illusionary foundation of complete unreliability and renders among our political leaders almost a greater fear of peace than is their fear of war.
