I . S . P . O . The Simultaneous Policy [international page] "In his widely influential book, "The Breakdown of Nations", Leopold Kohr argued more than half a century ago that the larger and more powerful a social unit becomes – i.e. a principality, region or nation - a critical mass is reached where its propensity to abusive aggression and war becomes inevitable.
Having convincingly established the point, Kohr went on to ask: "But what is the critical magnitude leading to abuse?" and then rightly concluded that "It is the volume of power that ensures immunity from retaliation. This it does whenever it induces in its possessor the belief that he cannot be checked by any existing larger accumulation of power."
