ALTERNATIVES TO THE WAR MACHINE

“To summarize: Three steps must be taken to smash the war racket.

  • 1. We must take the profit out of war.
  • 2. We must permit the youth of the land who would bear arms to decide whether or not there should be war.
  • 3. We must limit our military forces to home defense purposes.”

Maj. Gen. Smedley Darlington Butler, USMC
— from War Is a Racket
