The quotation that I have chosen is the third one, by Mahatma Gandhi "What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans
and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty and democracy?"
Mahatma Gandhi's quotation says a lot about his thoughts towards the British Empire and their way of invading and exploring.
In the quotation, Mahatma Gandhi says that it does not make any difference, whether or not the destruction is done in democracy or purely by force.
What he means by this is that willingly or not, destruction is destruction. I think that he refers to the British Empire when he is talking about the so-called "totalitarianism" since they were known for their brutal ways of invading countries and taking them for themselves.
