Quotation of the Day…

… is from a 1921 statement by Fanny Garrison Villard (daughter of William Lloyd Garrison) as quoted on page 118 of Marc-William Palen’s 2024 book, Pax Economica: Left-Wing Visions of a Free Trade World [bracketed remarks original to Palen]:

Our members [of the Women’s Peace Society] are devoted to the principle of Free-Trade and assert the right of every human to buy in the cheapest market and to sell in the dearest, and regard the constant infringement of this right as a chief cause of friction between nations. Richard Cobden […] saw clearly the intimate connection between Free-Trade and Peace.
