Excerpt:
‘The world will be forever grateful to you.’
‘Your job will be waiting for you when you get back.’
It’s not wrong to kill, my boy–you’re fighting for the right.’
I’d be out there myself if I were your age, son.’

Uh-huh. Well, look at him now. And look at millions like him…victims of the greatest racket ever perpetrated upon decent people.
For what else is war? We were going to make the world safe for democracy. (Did We?)
We were going to see that the rights of little nations were protected. (What rights?)
We were fighting the war to end all wars, and bring peace, everlasting peace, to a benign new world. )See today’s papers for th latest war news.)
Can’t you see the sly hand of the propagandist in the whole monstrous business? And can’t you see it at work again today?“
