"All efforts to render politics aesthetic culminate in one thing: war" is a dictum by Walter Benjamin from “The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction”.

Its original German reads "Alle Bemühungen um die Ästhetisierung der Politik gipfeln in einem Punkt. Dieser eine Punkt ist der Krieg."
