SriAurobindo:possession of power is the great test of all idealisms &as yet therehave been none religious orsecular which escaped corruptionSri Aurobindo(1917):bourgeois-democratic State has developed stupendous military organisation of which most powerful monarchs couldnot dreamSri Aurobindo:The supposition is that Democracies will be less ready to go to war than monarchies;but this is true within a certain measureSri Aurobindo (1917):Democracies are bourgeois States in form either of a constitutional monarchy or a middle-class republicSriAurobindo(1917):No voluntary league canbe permanent.Ideas whichsupported change, interests whichmade it effective become fatally obsoleteSriAurobindo,1917wrote any leagueofNations would break by future duel between youngTitan Socialism&old Olympiangods of bourgeois-democraciesSri Aurobindo: July 1917,2 months b4 Russian Revolution,writes 'guild aristocracy of labour might be the governing body of society'
