When we are victorious on a world scale I think we shall use gold for the purpose of building public lavatories in the streets of some of the
largest cities of the world. This would be the most “just” and most educational way of utilising gold for the benefit of these generations which
have not forgotten how, for the sake of gold, ten million men were killed and thirty million maimed in the “great war for freedom”, the war of
1914-18, the war that was waged to decide the great question of which peace was the worst, that of Brest or that of Versailles; and how, for the sake
of this same gold, they certainly intend to kill twenty million men and to maim sixty million in a war, say, in 1925, or 1928, between, say, Japan and
the U.S.A., or between Britain and the U.S.A., or something like that. But however “just”, useful, or humane it would be to utilise gold for this
purpose, we nevertheless say that we must work for another decade or two with the same intensity and with the same success as in the 1917-21 period,
only in a much wider field, in order to reach this state.
The value of gold as the foundation of a society?
It's all a joke. A bad one...
