This is the chilling and disturbing truth...

A quote from the book "Nuremberg Diary," taken from a conversation with Gestapo Leader and Nazi Ceasar Hermann Göring, one of the most evil persons inhabitied this world:

Göring: Why, of course, the people don't want war. Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece. Naturally, the common people don't want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship.

Gilbert: There is one difference. In a democracy, the people have some say in the matter through their elected representatives, and in the United States only Congress can declare wars.

Göring: Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.

For the Turhish readers of my blog, here is a transcript:
Göring: Elbet de insanlar savasmak istemezler. Fakir bir ciftci neden savassin, yapabilecegi en iyi sey ciftligine saglam olarak donmekken? Dogal olarak vatandaslar savas istemezler, ne Rusya'da, ne Ingiltere'de, ne Amerika'da ne de Almanya'da. Bu bilinen birsey. O ulkenin liderleridir politikayi belirleyen, ve insanlari alip goturmek cok kolaydir, demokrasi olsun, fasist bir diktatorluk olsun, komunist bir diktatorluk olsun, parlemento olsun fark etmez.

Gilbert: Ama bir fark var. Demokrasilerde halk temsilcileri vasitasiyla bu konularda soz sahibidirler. Amerika'da sadece kongre savas ilan edebilir.

Göring:
Oh, cok guzel ve iyi birseydir bu. Soz haklari olsun ya da olmasin, halk her zaman liderlerinin dediklerini destekler hale getirilebilirler. Yapmaniz gereken tek sey saldiri altinda olduklarini soylemek, pasifistleri vatansever olmamakla ve ulkeyi tehlikeye atmak ile suclamaktir. Bütün ülkelerde calisir bu yöntem.
