Gertrude-stein

...In an essay for Life Magazine in 1945 she wrote:

"When General Osborne came to see me just after the victory, he asked me what I thought should be done to educate the Germans. I said there is only one thing to be done and that is to teach them disobedience, as long as they are obedient so long sooner or later they will be ordered about by a bad man and there will be trouble. Teach them disobedience, I said, make every German child know that it is its duty at least once a day to do its good deed and not believe something its father or its teacher tells them, confuse their minds, get their minds confused and perhaps then they will be disobedient and the world will be at peace. The obedient peoples go to war, disobedient people like peace, that is the reason that Italy did not really become a good Axis, the people were not obedient enough, … General Osborn shook his head sadly, you’ll never make the heads of an army understand that. - See more at: http://baltimorepostexaminer.com/gertrude-stein-expat-art-collector-writer-pure-genius/2014/01/28#sthash.YIdAWacn.dpuf

En un ensayo para la revista Life en 1945, escribió: Cuando el general Osborne me vino a ver justo después de la victoria , me preguntó que pensaba que se debe hacer para educar a los alemanes. Le dije que sólo hay una cosa que hacer y es enseñarles la desobediencia si son obedientes , siempre tarde o temprano se organizarán en torno a un hombre malo y estaremos en problemas . Enseñe  la desobediencia, le dije, haga que cada niño alemán sepa cuál es su deber , al menos una vez al día a haga su buena acción y que no crea en algo que su padre o su maestro les dice , confundir sus mentes , con sus mentes confusas y tal vez entonces van a ser desobedientes y el mundo estará en paz . Personas obedientes van a la guerra , la gente desobediente a la  paz, esa es la razón por la que Italia no ha convertido realmente en un buen integrante el eje, la gente no era lo suficientemente obediente, ...El  general de Osborn sacudió la cabeza con tristeza , nunca va a hacer que las cabezas de un ejército lo entiendan..."
