The Neutrality Policy of the United States

By Julia E. Johnsen | Go to book overview

Burdens, if there were any, could be more easily equalized. Above all, we should have a loyalty that would be an emotional counter to the war madness. Peace would be, not merely the absence of war, but the chance to create, undisturbed from abroad, a worthy human society.

Finally, it is well to remind ourselves that the problem of avoiding war is not merely one of maintaining a virtuous isolation from hostilities that wicked foreigners may cause. For any new world war the United States will bear its full burden of responsibility, even if we are not ourselves in on its beginning. We may possibly fight for the chance to trade and invest in Asia. We are guilty of much of the present trouble in Europe--our part in the last war and its settlement, our tariffs, our loans, our attempt to collect uncollectible war debts, our boom and depression, were all powerful contributions, for instance, to the desperation that produced fascism in Germany. If there is to be real insurance against war, we must not confine our attention to ways of staying out. We must learn, along with other peoples, how to avoid provoking it. We must help the rest of the human race to want peace.


BRIEF EXCERPTS

At the bottom of the whole discussion there is a broad and fundamental question, no less a question than what shall be the policy of the United States toward the European world. Walter Lippmann. New York Herald Tribune. D. 31, '35.

Admiral Sims said, "It boils down to this: In case of another major war, are we going to fight for freedom of the seas, or are we going to curb the desire of certain citizens to make money out of other people's wars?" Congressional Record. Jl. 25, '35. p. 12370.
