The Big Speech: War and Peace

I have put up, as best I might, with millionaires of my time when they decreed war, sudden and sensational war, as everyone admitted; mean and immoral war, as I believed. I have got used to millionaires when they dictate war. But if they begin to dictate peace I positively rebel.

G.K. Chesterton: Illustrated London News, Dec. 31, 1910.
