quotes with the word "pacifist"
China, up to 50 years ago, was completely non-homogenous, being compartmented into groups divided against each other. The war-making tendency was almost non-existent, as they still followed the tenets of the Confucian ideal of pacifist culture. At the turn of the century, under the regime of Chang Tso Lin, efforts toward greater homogeneity produced the start of a nationalist urge. This was further and more successfully developed under the leadership of Chiang Kai-Shek, but has been brought to its greatest fruition under the present regime to the point that it has now taken on the character of a united nationalism of increasingly dominant, aggressive tendencies.
Farewell address to Congress
I am not only a pacifist but a militant pacifist. I am willing to fight for peace. Nothing will end war unless the people themselves refuse to go to war.
Interview with George Sylvester Viereck
My passion for social justice has often brought me into conflict with people, as did my aversion to any obligation and dependence I do not regard as absolutely necessary. I always have a high regard for the individual and have an insuperable distaste for violence and clubmanship.All these motives made me into a passionate pacifist and anti-militarist. I am against any nationalism, even in the guise of mere patriotism. Privileges based on position and property have always seemed to me unjust and pernicious, as did any exaggerated personality cult.
still too weak at the moment to speak in a language other than the language of pacifism.
about the Nazi regime, in article "Hitler the Pacifist"
I would like to write of Japan's remorse over the war, its postwar history as a pacifist nation and how it will contribute to the Asia-Pacific region and the world.
During the past 70 years ... Japan moved ahead as a pacifist nation and made a big contribution to peace, development and democratization in the Asia-Pacific and the world.
We should not send troops for training in any of the neighbouring countries, particularly when they are sending us suicide bombers in return . . . I am a pacifist, I abhor violence - we would have been much better off if we had never fought against the Soviet Union.
I am not a pacifist . . . when our country is threatened... I believe we need coalitions to come together.
