Those who dwell in teeming bamboo ant heaps are not entitled to such emotions as fear. Such feelings and concerns are the prerogatives only of the ‘rich men dwelling at peace within their habitations,’ in Churchill’s rhetoric, the ‘satisfied nations, who wished nothing more for themselves than what they had,’ and to whom, therefore, ‘the government of the world must be entrusted’ if there is to be peace — a certain kind of peace, in which the rich men must be free from fear. Just how secure the rich men must be from fear is revealed graphically by highly-regarded scholarship on the new doctrines of ‘anticipatory self-defence’ crafted by the powerful.
