Guess which celebrity-turned-social-activist wrote the following:


We are facing a grave crisis in our national life. The few who profit from the labor of the masses want to organize the workers into an army which will protect the interests of the capitalists. You are urged to add to the heavy burdens you already bear; the burden of a larger army and many additional warships. It is in your power to refuse to carry the artillery...You do not need to make a great noise about it. With the silence and dignity of creators you can end wars and the system of selfishness and exploitation that causes wars. All you need to do to bring about this stupendous revolution is to straighten up and fold your arms.

Answer in next entry. You may be surprised.
