Right Above Race by Otto H. Kahn 1917

the rise of the Prussian race

Mr. Kahn's rebuke to those noxious demagogues who try to aid Germany and hurt America by prattling about this being "a rich man's war" is rendered all the stronger because he insists on heavy progressive taxation of incomes and profits for war purposes.

Frenzied Liberty; The Myth of "A Rich Man's War" by Otto H. Kahn 1918

The deadliest foe of democracy is not autocracy but liberty frenzied.

Envy, demagogism, utopianism, well-meaning uplift agitation may throw themselves against that basic law of all being, but the clash will create merely temporary confusion, destruction and anarchy, as in Russia; and after a little while and much suffering, [10]the supremacy of sanely restrained individualism over frenzied collectivism will reassert itself.
