    Nationwide machine


    Can anybody explain to me what is the meaning of a nationwide machine?

    In an all-night sitting the committee created a new political party, promulgated a new programme, organised a nationwide machine and planned a whirlwind campaign of oratory and pamphleteering.

    Thanks a lot.

    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer
