projected international Ever-Normal Granary, Wallace noted that "we are writing the postwar world as we go along. . . ." 78 The New Deal had written much of its program as it went along, subsuming a tendency toward humanitarian social reform under a commitment to save and expand the capitalist system. During the war, social liberals had formulated, in the plans for a world New Deal and a postwar welfare state, a blueprint for transforming the New Deal into a coherent program and faced powerful enemies who were no longer held in check by mass unemployment. In the aftermath of the BEW affair, social liberals would either have to adapt existing political institutions to the program of a people's century or accept a subordinate position within the New Deal coalition. To a great extent, the future of the people's century would be decided by Henry Wallace's struggle for renomination in 1944. In that struggle, both the strengths and weaknesses of social liberalism as a political force would be dramatically displayed.
