"The majority of pacifists either belong to obscure religious sects or are simply humanitarians who object to taking life and prefer not to follow their thoughts beyond that point. But there is a minority of intellectual pacifists, whose real though unacknowledged motive appears to be hatred of western democracy and admiration for totalitarianism. Pacifist propaganda usually boils down to saying that one side is as bad as the other, but if one looks closely at the writing of the younger intellectual pacifists, one finds that they do not by any means express impartial disapproval but are directed almost entirely against Britain and the United States ..."
(From Orwell's Notes on Nationalism in May 1945)
Take that, pacifists.
Interesting to see that even back then anti-American and anti-western sentiment was rife.
I found the above quote in this old Slate article from 2004 by Christopher Hitchens: Unfairenheit 9/11, The lies of Michael Moore. Well worth a read if you think Michael Moore even knows that the word 'honest' means.
