Nobel ‘Peace’ Prize

Email Print

Alfred Nobel wanted his peace prize to be awarded to those who have worked “for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies, and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses,” but since he left its administration to a bunch of politicians in his will, men who are bloodthirsty by nature, the prize went wrong early on, with awards to such war criminals as Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson. Henry Kissinger, Barack Obama, and other mass murderers followed in their turn. So giving it to the EU, subservient province of the US empire in all its wars, is in this tradition.
