“Peace, in the political sense of the word, that is, the ending of war, can only be established by bringing the whole world under the reign of law.”
“It will never be desirable that humanity should become a single uniform nationality.
”You cannot erect a peace system on a basis of the coercion of governments by governments.”
“There is no way of ending war and establishing peace and liberty on earth save by creating a true Federation (not a League) of Nations.”
“There is only one way of ending war and of establishing peace and that is by introducing into the international sphere the principle of the state”
“If unification does not come by voluntary federation it will come by way of empire”
--From "Pacifism is not Enough, nor Patriotism Either," Lord Lothian, 1935.
