Orwell and the pacifists

Here's a quote from George Orwell, perhaps the wisest man that ever lived. I didn't know he has written this, and as I just bumped onto it while surfing, I wanted to post it here too:
"In so far as it hampers the British war effort, British pacifism is on the side of the Nazis, and German pacifism, if it exists, is on the side of Britain and the USSR. Since pacifists have more freedom of action in countries where traces of democracy survive, pacifism can act more effectively against democracy than for it. Objectively the pacifist is pro-Nazi."
How true. And how wise..
