National Esperanto

Famous quotes containing the words national and/or esperanto:

    [D]rilling and arming, when carried on on a national scale, excite whole populations to frenzies which end in war.
    Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882–1945)

    The new sound-sphere is global. It ripples at great speed across languages, ideologies, frontiers and races.... The economics of this musical esperanto is staggering. Rock and pop breed concentric worlds of fashion, setting and life-style. Popular music has brought with it sociologies of private and public manner, of group solidarity. The politics of Eden come loud.
