Description

Excerpt from The Cure for War Why have we not produced such a genius It is not vain to ask ourselves that question, for genius is not lonely but fed by the ideas and disposition of all ordinary men. Nietzsche was a symptom and if we have shown no symptom of equal but contrary power, it is the fault of all of us. We may not have loved war, but we have not hated it, or loved peace, strongly enough to make some man of genlus the mouthpiece of our common love and hatred. We have been neither hot nor cold, and in Laodicea there is no gospel either of God or of the Devil to fire the world. In Laodicea there are only platitudes and so to Nietzsche England seemed the home of platitude, and insular platitude which only an Englishman could be dull enough to utter and believe. That is where we, as a nation, have failed in our duty to the thought of the world. We may not have talked nonsense passionately; but we have not told the truth passionately either and so, when we have told it, no one has listened to us.
