where the writers are
Bertrand Russel

"No one can deny, in the face of the evidence, that it is easy, given military power, to produce a population of fanatical lunatics. It would be equally easy to produce a population of sane and reasonable people, but many governments do not wish to do so, since such people would fail to admire the politicians who are at the head of these governments"http://www.andsuchandsuch.com/media/russell.jpg
