The first nation which will dare to apply this truth to its own affairs and relationships will draw a dividing line through the world's history. It may have to suffer although not in the same way, nor to the same extreme extent, as did Telemachus, who was stoned to death in Rome's Arena but accomplished his mission of putting an end forever to combats between man and beast. But this nation will prove that the vicious circle of war unending can be broken, that bloody combat of people against people can end.
