„I would like to show the German people a film with the title "Germany at the end of the war". Then perhaps people would be alarmed and would realize where we are heading. People would agree with me that the superior warlord (Hitler) must disappear. But since we cannot show this movie people will create the legend of the "stab in the back" whenever we will act against Hitler.“

December 1941. Bodo Scheurig, Henning von Tresckow, <i>ein Preusse gegen Hitler</i>, p. 135-6.

„I am still the Hitler of the time. This Hitler has only one objective, justice for his own people, sovereignty for his people, recognition of the independence of his people, and their right to their resources. If that is Hitler, then let me be a Hitler tenfold. Ten times, that is what we stand for.“

—  Robert Mugabe former President of Zimbabwe 1924 - 2019

„Qaddafi declared he would show “no mercy” to his own people.“

—  Barack Obama 44th President of the United States of America 1961

2011, Address on interventions in Libya (March 2011)
Contexte: Ten days ago, having tried to end the violence without using force, the international community offered Qaddafi a final chance to stop his campaign of killing, or face the consequences. Rather than stand down, his forces continued their advance, bearing down on the city of Benghazi, home to nearly 700,000 men, women and children who sought their freedom from fear.
At this point, the United States and the world faced a choice. Qaddafi declared he would show “no mercy” to his own people. He compared them to rats, and threatened to go door to door to inflict punishment. In the past, we have seen him hang civilians in the streets, and kill over a thousand people in a single day. Now we saw regime forces on the outskirts of the city.  -->

„In order for the world to become peaceful, people must become more peaceful. Among mature people war would not be a problem — it would be impossible.“

—  Peace Pilgrim American non-denominational spiritual teacher 1908 - 1981

Steps Toward Inner Peace : Harmonious Principles for Human Living http://www.peacepilgrim.net/FoPP/htm/steps.htm
Contexte: In order for the world to become peaceful, people must become more peaceful. Among mature people war would not be a problem — it would be impossible. In their immaturity people want, at the same time, peace and the things which make war. However, people can mature just as children grow up. Yes, our institutions and our leaders reflect our immaturity, but as we mature we will elect better leaders and set up better institutions. It always comes back to the thing so many of us wish to avoid: working to improve ourselves.
