| Quote #10
"If nuclear power makes them dangerous, a sincere friendship through trade will be many times better than an insecure overlordship, based on the hated supremacy of a foreign spiritual power, which, once it weakens ever so slightly, can only fall entirely and leave nothing substantial behind except an immortal fear and hate." (V.13.44)
In a phrase: make love not war. Erm, make trade at any rate. We're more likely to be friends with someone who trades with us than someone who snootily overlords us.
