Race and National Solidarity

Excerpt

The rapid disintegration of civilization in Europe since the war must be a cause of serious alarm to all who are interested in the good of mankind. This is especially true of those who regard the good of mankind as largely dependent on the good of the white races. To these the crisis in the Near East came as the realization of their worst fears. A divided, vacillating Europe; a Europe suffering from paralysis of will; a Europe with governments no longer able to count on the loyalty of citizens; a Europe with nations thwarting each other commercially as well as politically; a Europe rapidly declining economically; a Europe with its moral tone at a shockingly low ebb; a Europe in such condition called on to face a determined and morally rejuvenated foe. No wonder those who had hoped that the end of the war would usher in a new era of peace, good-will, and artistic fruitfulness are full of pessimism, not only for the future of Europe but for mankind at large.

Great as is the lack of unity and harmony in the realm of politics, economics, and business, the lack is probably even greater in the realm of ideals and ethics. In fact, the lack of unity and harmony in the realm of ideals is largely responsible for the lack of unity elsewhere observed. Europe and countries with European culture are being torn by conflicting values and ideals.
