"Out of war, nations acquire additional
territory…. They just take it. This newly acquired territory promptly is
exploited by the few – the selfsame few who wrung dollars out of blood in
the war. The general public shoulders the bill."

"This bill renders a horrible accounting. Newly
placed gravestones. Mangled bodies. Shattered minds. Broken hearts and
homes. Economic instability. Depression and all its attendant miseries.
Back-breaking taxation for generations and generations."
