The Great Pretense : A Symposium on Anti-Stalinism and the 20th Congress of the Soviet Communist Party; May 19, 1956 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Great Pretense: A Symposium on Anti-Stalinism and the 20th Congress of the Soviet Communist Party; May 19, 1956 When bourgeois diplomats are preparing for war they begin to shout more strongly about peace and friendly relations. If any Foreign Minister begins to defend to the death the peace conference, you can be sure his government has already placed its orders for new dread naughts and airplanes. A diplomat's words must have no relation to action - otherwise what kind of diplomacy is it? Words are one thing, actions another. Good words are a mask for the concealment Of bad deeds. Sincere diplomacy is no more possible than dry water or iron wood - Joseph Stalin, Elections in Petersburg.
