In Service of Moloch

In Service of Moloch

“I had come to politics very late, when I was almost forty, jolted awake by the gruesome reality of the war (WWI) and profoundly horrified at the ease with which my colleagues and friends had enlisted in the service of Moloch. Already a few friends had turned away from me and I had incurred the first of those attacks, threats and insults which is so-called heroic times conformists never fail to heap upon a man who walks alone….”
Hermann Hesse,
from If the War Goes On
