From Doubt, 1946.
"Maintaining peace under the profits system is a very simple process. All that wants arranging is some means for spending war-like sums of taxes (and for collecting war-like sums of charity) with the war-like approval of the constituency. In other words, if Science or Progress or any other myth can be given the aura of immediate necessity which is obtained for all spending in war time, we are, by God, in the bag. To this end, the Fortean Society proposes its PPP.
As all good members know, P P P is the Fortean Society Perpetual Peace Plan. The planks in the platform to date are:
- A cyclotron in every high school.
- An atom busting plant in every middlesix and village.
- every waiter a Ph.D.
- Every laundress a B.A.
- A standing army of 10,000,000 translators, to translate every book ever written in any language into every other language.
- Subsidies for publishers to issue all these books, and booksellers to sell them on every corner.
