A Quote by Manton S. Eddy on country, good, guidance, idealism, patriotism, soul, and world

In a world where so much seems to be hidden by the smoke of falsity and moral degeneration, we Americans must grasp firmly the ideals which have made this country great. We must reaffirm the basic human values that have guided our forefathers. A revival of old-fashioned patriotism and a grateful acknowledgment of what our country has done for us would be good for all our souls.

A Quote by Hermann Goering on country, danger, patriotism, people, simplicity, and war

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. . . . All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.
