A Democratic Manifesto

Excerpt

TWENTY YEARS after the complete and utter defeat of autocratic and militaristic principles and states, the world is now undergoing the greatest onslaught in history by those same autocratic, militaristic forces. Twenty years after the greatest victory of democratic principles and of democratic nations, democracy is on the defensive all along the line. All the democratic nations of continental Europe have been vanquished and conquered. The two most powerful units of the world -- the British Commonwealth of Nations and the United States of America -- are forced to mobilize their entire resources in order to defend themselves and to escape defeat and conquest by those very same anti-democratic forces which were laid prostrate by them twenty years ago.

What has happened during those twenty years?

After their victory in 1918, the democratic, freedom-loving nations had full control of and absolute power over this planet. Those forces which were threatening the security and peace of the democracies were not stronger than the few criminals who are always threatening individual security and public order within an organized state.
