Awake Peace Movement Invitation

I’m sorry I don’t want to be an emperor that’s not my business I don’t want to
rule or conquer anyone I should like to help everyone if possible Jew Gentile
black man white we all want to help one another human beings are like that we
want to live by each other’s happiness not by each other’s misery we don’t want
to hate and despise one another in this world is room for everyone on the good
earth is rich and can provide for everyone the way of life can be free and beautiful but we have lost the way greed has poisoned men’s souls has barricaded the world with hate has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed we have developed speed but we have shut ourselves in machinery that gives abundance has left us in want our knowledge has made us cynical our cleverness hard and unkind we think too much feel too little more than machinery we need humanity more than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness without these qualities life will be violent and all will be lost the aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together the very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men cries out for universal brotherhood for the unity of us all even now my voice is
reaching millions throughout the world millions of despairing men women and
little children victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent
people for those who can hear me I say do not despair the misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress the hate of men will pass and dictators die and the power they took from the people will return to the people and so long as men die Liberty will never perish soldiers don’t give yourselves to brutes men who despise you enslave you who regiment your lives tell you what to do what to think of what to feel who drill you diet you treat you like cattle use you as cannon fodder don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men machine men with machine minds and machine hearts you are not machines you are not careful you are men you have the love of humanity in your hearts you don’t hate only the unloved hate the unloved and the unnatural soldiers don’t fight for slavery fight for liberty in the seventeenth chapter of st. Luke it is written the kingdom of God is within man not one man nor a group of men but in all men in you you the people have the power the power to create machines the power to create happiness you the people have the power to make this life free and beautiful to make this life a wonderful adventure then in the name of democracy let us use that power let us all unite let us fight for a new
world a decent world that will give men a chance to work then we’ll give you the
future and old age a security by the promise of these things brutes have risen to power but they lie they do not fulfill their promise they never will dictators free themselves but they enslave the people now let us fight to fulfill that promise let us fight to free the world to do away with national barriers to do away with greed with hate and intolerance let us fight for a world of reason a world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness soldiers in the name of democracy
