BPR Quote of the Day: If All Else Fails…..

“War is made or planned now by individual men, demagogues and dictators who play on the patriotism of their people to mislead them into a belief in the great fallacy of war when all their vaunted reforms have failed to satisfy the people they misrule.”

Ernest Hemingway

from “Notes on the Next War: A Serious Topical Letter” Esquire (September 1935)
