“There is a gang behind the government at Washington. It is an International Conspiracy.

“The only trouble with it is that it is going to win.

“It is going to win because it is unbelievably rich. Anyone in his right senses should be on the side of such wealth and such success.

“The only trouble with me is: knowing how rich it is and being convinced of its impending success, I still am not enthusiastic. I am not interested. For the conspiracy is simply the world. I am a Christian.” (1962)
