Henry De Groux - French soldiers wearing gas masks (1915)

No need any longer to make any sound,as we turn the whole earth to a burial ground.It’s easy to strengthen our front if we try.Whole armies will perish without knowing why.One press of the button’s enough to expungehundreds of thousands of enemy lungs.No need to shout, we just hold our breath,and our victims will silently go to their death.

(Karl Kraus, The Last Days of Mankind)
