A time will come when a politician who has willfully made war and promoted international dissension will be as sure of the dock and much surer of the noose than a private homicide. It is not reasonable that those who gamble with men's lives should not stake their own.

Did you know about H. G. Wells?

G. Wells has had a great impact on history.

He was also from an early date an outspoken socialist often (but not always as at the beginning of the First World War) sympathising with pacifist views. Some described lower-middle class life (Kipps; The History of Mr Polly) leading him to be touted as a worthy successor to Charles Dickens but Wells described a range of social strata and even attempted in Tono-Bungay (1909) a diagnosis of English society as a whole. Wells is one person sometimes called "The Father of Science Fiction" as are Jules Verne and Hugo Gernsback.
