„The war has made us a nation of great power and intelligence.“

—  Ulysses S. Grant 18th President of the United States 1822 - 1885

Kontext: The war has made us a nation of great power and intelligence. We have but little to do to preserve peace, happiness and prosperity at home, and the respect of other nations. Our experience ought to teach us the necessity of the first; our power secures the latter.

„War has been the necessary and inevitable consequence of the establishment of a monopoly on security.“

—  Gustave de Molinari Belgian political economist and classical liberal theorist 1819 - 1912

Quelle: The Production of Security (1849), p. 34-35
Kontext: Everywhere, when societies originate, we see the strongest, most warlike races seizing the exclusive government of the society. Everywhere we see these races seizing a monopoly on security within certain more or less extensive boundaries, depending on their number and strength.And, this monopoly being, by its very nature, extraordinarily profitable, everywhere we see the races invested with the monopoly on security devoting themselves to bitter struggles, in order to add to the extent of their market, the number of their forced consumers, and hence the amount of their gains.War has been the necessary and inevitable consequence of the establishment of a monopoly on security.Another inevitable consequence has been that this monopoly has engendered all other monopolies.

„The war is inevitable—and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.“

—  Patrick Henry attorney, planter, politician and Founding Father of the United States 1736 - 1799

1770s, "Give me liberty, or give me death!" (1775)
Kontext: Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable—and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.

„Who does not see that the blame of this return to the feral age is not of the soldiers who become barbaric and fierce in the fury of the battle, but of those powers and governments that, keeping peoples eager for freedom enslaved, make the wars inevitable?“

—  Ernesto Teodoro Moneta Italian journalist, nationalist, revolutionary soldier and later a pacifist and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate 1833 - 1918

Le guerre, le insurrezioni e la pace nel secolo XIX, vol. 4 https://archive.org/stream/leguerreleinsur00monegoog#page/n374/mode/2up (Milano: Società Internazionale per la Pace, 1910), p. 278 https://archive.org/stream/leguerreleinsur00monegoog#page/n658/mode/2up.
Original: (it) Chi non vede che la colpa di questo ritorno all'età ferina non è dei soldati che nel furor della lotta diventano barbari e feroci, ma di quelle potenze e di quei governi che, tenendo schiavi popoli anelanti a libertà, rendono le guerre inevitabili?

„Ben Battle was a soldier bold,
And used to war's alarms;
But a cannon-ball took off his legs,
So he laid down his arms.“
