“We don’t want a capitulation,” said Rud. “You see, Reedly, we don’t want any excuse for an assembly of the old governments on our side. … From our point of view the war to end war can have no formal end. We’ve got controlled shipping, amalgamated air forces, pooled finance, consolidated news-services, a common uniform. We want to keep them common for evermore. But the day we proclaim Victory and Peace the diplomatists and nationalists will come creeping out of their funk-holes again with their flags and claims and bills on each other and all that sort of thing. Versailles all over again.”

– H. G. Wells, The Holy Terror. 1939. 3.2.7.
