43 Mises Quotes on War and Peace. Reed Coverdale, Patrick McFarlane, & Keith Knight.

by | Mar 20, 2022

Modern war is not a war of royal armies. It is a war of the peoples, a total war. It is a war of states which do not leave to their subjects any private sphere; they consider the whole population a part of the armed forces. Whoever does not fight must work for the support and equipment of the army. Army and people are one and the same. The citizens passionately participate in the war. For it is their state, their God, who fights.

Ludwig von Mises, Ph.D., Omnipotent Government, p. 104
