Industry Brings War to an End

Commerce and industry are certain to end the folly and barbarism of war; since the rise to consciousness of the working classes (who fill the armies) will make their community of interest the world over plain to themselves, and they will see that to hire themselves out to kill one another is a crime to common humanity.

——Anna Monsch Roberts in Popular Science, 1908. She wrote about six years before the First World War.
