Inspirational Quote of the Day: One by A Nobel Peace Prize Winner

Wikipedia

Sir Ralph Norman Angell (26 December 1872 – 7 October 1967) was an English lecturer, journalist, author, and Member of Parliament[1] for the Labour Party.
Angell was one of the principal founders of the Union of Democratic Control. He served on the Council of the Royal Institute of International Affairs, was an executive for the World Committee against War and Fascism, a member of the executive committee of the League of Nations Union, and the president of the Abyssinia Association. He was knighted in 1931 and awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1933.[2][3]

Angell is most widely remembered for his 1909 pamphlet, Europe’s Optical Illusion, which was published the following year (and many years thereafter) as the book, The Great Illusion. (The anti-war film La Grande Illusion took its title from his pamphlet.) The thesis of the book was that the integration of the economies of European countries had grown to such a degree that war between them would be entirely futile, making militarism obsolete.

  1. I know nothing about the guy which is a great platform from which to launch an opinion.

    “He was knighted in 1931 and awarded the Nobel Dynamite Prize in 1933.[2][3]

    Obviously he was wildly wrong. Militarism survives to this day. He should have instead said that war in Europe would destroy all local and nearby monarchies and Empires. That might have been a much better argument. Kings, Kaisers, Sultans and Tsars might have worried. Tell the bosses what they will lose due to war – not that their peasants will suffer. Why are (((peaceniks))) so stupid – or are they pro war (((wolves))) in sheeples clothing?

    Was he perhaps a Commie rat, Jew, Mason or Illuminati Stooge? He got his dynamite prize in 1933 – a very appropriate year when Hitler became boss of Germany and thus war in Europe was certain. Hitler was (((Time Magazine))) Man of the Year 1938.

    I wonder how many (((people))) made big, bigly, bigliest, money by betting on (investing in) the tiny USA armaments industry, or British, during the mid-1930s? Roosevelt, Churchill and several USA Commie (((traitors))) had already decided to fight Hitler and Japan by the end of the 1930s. Some lucky (((Investors))) probably got super rich from 1935 to 1945. I wonder which tribe most were from?
