Pacifism simply is not a matter of calm looking on; it is work, hard work

“…each war carried within itself, the war which will answer it. Each war is answered by another war, until everything is destroyed…That is why I’m so wholeheartedly for a radical end to the madness…Pacifism simply is not a matter of calm looking on; it is work, hard work…those lovely small apples out there…everything could be so beautiful if it were not for the insanity of war…one day, a new idea will arise and there will be an end of all wars…People will have to work hard for that new state of things, but they will achieve it.”

Kathe Kollwitz (1867 – 1945)
