“But the first ones make them do it.”
“And I help them.”
“You are a foreigner. You are a patriot.”
“And the ones who would not make war? Can they stop it?”
“I do not know.”

“Have they ever been able to stop it?
“They are not organized to stop things and when they get organized their leaders sell them out.” (69)
