Huxley on War and Democracy by Skargill Huxley on War and Democracy by Skargill
Been finding quotations by Aldous Huxley, author of Brave New World, one of my favourites. I don't agree with everything he believed, he was at heart quite the snob, but the fellow was certainly very clever.

You already have the context, do you not know what that word means?

What occasion/circumstances led to these words--i.e. in what written piece/speech/telepathic message do they appear?

So you want the source then, next time ask for what you actually want and maybe you'll get it. He made this statement many times with slight variations. You can find a version quote in ends and means or a collection of his essays for the Peace Pledge Union.

He's asking the whole passage this quote came from.

But that isn't context, that's source, and if he really wanted to find that out so badly all he had to do was put it into a search engine.

I read your comment as a really dark self esteem speech. "Don't you see, you had the power to cause misery and suffering inside you all a long".

Well, any government agency of any nationality has the ability as well.  They have the paperwork after all. ;)

In theory yes, but only the NSA/CIA other US defence organisation have the billions of dollars in funding and high tech arms to dominate the world militarily ;)
