―Pearl S. Buck
To My Daughters, With Love (1967), "To You on Your First Birthday"
“Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear - kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor - with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil at home or some monstrous foreign power that was going to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it by furnishing the exorbitant funds demanded. Yet, in retrospect, these disasters seem never to have happened, seem never to have been quite real.”
In 1957. As quoted in "Merchants of Fear: Why They Want Us to Be Afraid", Christopher Catherwood, Joseph DiVanna, Globe Pequot, 2008, p. 131
