Are We Willing to Pay the Price of Peace?

Would You Make a Treaty With the Devil?

So they entered into treaties with Germany, created the League of Nations, and held their breath. Men like Winston Churchill (sadly, only a few) recognized the danger. Why would no one listen to them? Why did they continue to trust treaties with the devil? For the simplest of reasons. They were tired, worn down by war and deathly afraid of war. They wanted peace at almost any price, and so they grasped at the tenders of peace and hoped for the best. They got the worst. And they got it because they weren’t willing to pay the price of peace.
