What is it good for?

The wife got this quote in some sort of email forward. I had never seen it before and I wish I had seen it before the election when it seemed I was getting into daily arguments about the war.

Naturally, the people don't want war, but they can always be brought to the bidding of their leaders. Tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and endangering the country. It works the same in every country.

Herman Goering, Hitler's Reichsmarschall at the Nuremberg Trials.

Works in any country indeed.
