Otto Lilienthal about flight and peace


** Did you understand the German passage posted earlier this week? Here is the English translation. **
Free, unlimited human flight… would have a dramatic effect on the circumstances of our lives. The borders between countries would lose their significance because they could not be closed anymore: with increased human mobility the differences between languages would start to disappear. …The necessity to solve disagreements among nations in some other way than by bloody battles for the now imaginary borders would lead us to eternal peace.
We are getting closer to this goal. When we will reach it, I do not know.
[Otto Lilienthal, the first person to successfully fly with a glider, in a letter to Moritz von Egidy, 1894]
