We Stand Above by Aleister Crowley in International, Dec 1917.

“But the treasures of art, of literature, of music, must this time be preserved for humanity; and we are determined to resist to the death any attack upon those treasures. We are — for the moment — fighting the Germans; but Faust and Siegfried and Zarathustra, the achievement of Kant in philosophy and of Helmholtz in physics, must be put ‘out of bounds.’ We stand above.” [via]
