More of Alison's books…
“There are perhaps many causes worth dying for, but to me, certainly, there are none worth killing for.”
Albert Dietrich, Army GI, Pacifist CO: The World War II Letters of Frank and Albert Dietrich

David Mitchell
“We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love.”
David Mitchell, The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet

George Orwell
“Pacifism is objectively pro-fascist. This is elementary common sense. If you hamper the war effort of one side, you automatically help out that of the other. Nor is there any real way of remaining outside such a war as the present one. In practice, 'he that is not with me is against me'.”
George Orwell

Stephen King
“Fighting for peace, is like f***ing for chastity”
Stephen King, Hearts in Atlantis

Thomas Jefferson
“The equal rights of man, and the happiness of every individual, are now acknowledged to be the only legitimate objects of government.”
Thomas Jefferson, Letters of Thomas Jefferson
