The Department of State Bulletin, Vol. 9 : October 2, 1943 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Department of State Bulletin, Vol. 9: October 2, 1943 And now, a quarter of a century later, new bands of brothers, many of them not only of America but of the United Nations, are once again carving their names on the deathless scroll of heroism. But heroism in war is not going to be enough - this time. We fought the last war to end wars. We won and then, quite simply, went to sleep. I do not believe that this can happen again. I believe that while human na ture through the centuries may not greatly change, human experience leaves its indelible mark. Today the best minds in the field of medicine are studying and working to eradicate disease from the world, from humanity. Is not the cult of militarism simply a disease, an epi demic, that periodically breaks loose and over runs the world? Once started, any epidemic is hard to curb, but it can be curbed by prophy lactic measures taken in time. Yellow fever and malaria in many lands have been forever blotted out. How? Simply by removing the conditions under which they existed. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
