The pacifist movements naturally attract intellectuals and artists, ministers of religion and humanitarians. But they also attract the sinister and subversive elements who try to direct, guide, or secretly control them, to make them serve their own antisocial destructive purposes. The presence and prominence of genuine idealists along with these pretended ones create confusion in the public mind. How can a movement be bad which is supported by such good men? That they are being used as a cover for the activities of bad men who spread falsehood and preach hatred is not so easily seen.
