encouraged such treaties,
and toward the end of the nineteenth century their

Even a total and universal disarmament does not guarantee
the maintenance of peace.

Every success in limiting armaments is a sign that
the will to achieve mutual understanding exists,

international law and order.
- Ludwig Quidde

Disarmament or limitation of armaments,
which depends on the progress made on security,
also contributes to the maintenance of peace.
- Ludwig Quidde

Armaments are necessary - or are maintained on the pretext of necessity -
because of a real or an imagined danger of war.

the Conference of the Interparliamentary Union at The
Hague decided to set up a special commission to study the problem seriously.

the development of international law through an international
organization based on the principles of law and justice.

can be secured by disarmament and that disarmament
must therefore precede the attainment of absolute security and lasting peace.

danger of armaments and to insist on their curtailment.

concluded in which the contracting powers pledge in
advance to submit all conflicts to an arbitration court,
treaties which not only specify the composition of the court,
but also its procedure.
- Ludwig Quidde

importance of security too far,
to the point of declaring that any consideration of
disarmament is superfluous and pointless as long as
eternal peace has not been attained.
- Ludwig Quidde

Among pacifists it was above all the English who always
insisted on the importance of disarmament.

Then no one would dare to demand a penny for obviously
completely superfluous armaments.
- Ludwig Quidde

It could be stipulated in an international treaty that
these armaments should be simultaneously and uniformly
reduced by a certain proportion in all countries.
- Ludwig Quidde

when there is a danger of war, they will not be willing
to disarm even when logic indicates that disarmament
would not affect military security at all.
- Ludwig Quidde
