15.6 from "The Chance for Peace"

The fruit of success in all these tasks would present the world with the greatest task, and the greatest opportunity of all. It is this: the dedication of the energies, the resources, and the imaginations of all peaceful nations to a new kind of war. This would be declared a total war, not upon any enemy but upon the brute forces of poverty and need.

The peace we seek, founded upon decent trust and cooperative effort among nations, can be fortified not by weapons of war but by wheat and by cotton, by milk and by wool, by meat and by timber and by rice. These are words that translate into every language on earth. These are needs that challenge this world in arms.

-- Dwight D. Eisenhower, "The Chance for Peace"
