"The issues of war and peace
cannot be melted down into a naive psychology of 'peace through better
understanding among peoples'. It is not the aggression of people in general
but their mass indifference that is the point of their true political and
psychological relevance to the thrust toward war. It is neither the 'psychology
of peoples' nor raw 'human nature' that is relevant; it is the moral insensibility
of people who are selected, molded, and honoured in the mass society" (The
Causes of World War III, 1958, p. 81).
