— Eduardo Galeano, Open Veins of Latin America, 1973
"[T]he Great Powers of the West are seeking peace, not by curbing their greed, or by giving up the exclusive advantages which they have unjustly acquired, but by concentrating their forces for mutual security...

The West seems unconscious that Science, by providing it with more and more power, is tempting it to suicide..."
— Rabindranath Tagore, "The Modern Age," in Creative Unity, 1922
