Pacifism is objectively pro-Fascist. This is elementary common sense. If you hamper the war effort of one side you automatically help that of the other. Nor is there any real way of remaining outside such a war as the present one.
What I object to is the intellectual cowardice of people who are objectively and to some extent emotionally pro-Fascist, but who don’t care to say so and take refuge behind the formula ‘I am just as anti-fascist as anyone, but—’. The result of this is that so-called peace propaganda is just as dishonest and intellectually disgusting as war propaganda.
If you think the era of President George W. Bush has resembled to that of some conditions described in 1984, then you would better be prepared for the era of President Barack H. Obama for some of the conditions described in Orwell’s other famous novel, Animal Farm.
