debate with Professor Knight. But,
since has has raised the issues am
iably and in impersonal manner. I
see no harm in setting down my
reactions to his observations.
Professor Knight contends that
the World War liberated a great
flood of idealistic sentiment and
promoted the cause of democracy
throughout the world.
There were many idealistic promises embodied In the Entente
to be sure, but this propaganda also stirred the worst wave
of cruelty, collective sadism and
bloodlust In all human history. Most
participants forgot their idealism in
their zeal to hate and shed blood.
Worse than that, the ultimate
revelation that the idealism was
actually bogus and the "front" for
sinister aggression and territorial
annexation, served to bring international idealism Into disrepute as
never before in human history. Today, if a statesman is literally
idealistic he can get few to believe
him. Remembering the great deception at Versailles, the idealist
today, however sincere, is usually
greeted with a hqrsqlaugh.
war for idealism ended up in all
'jut extinguishing idealistic sentiments in the world scene.
Similarly with democracy, the
war to make the world safe for
iemocracy wound up by making
democracy more unsafe than ever
jefore. It is in greater eclipse today
nan at any time since the collapse
f the Revolution
of 1848. Che
United States is the only major
itate in the world which can claim
;ven a semblence cf democracy
titwithout provoking a world-wid- e
ter among realistic persons all over
he world.
No more satisfactory was the
liberation of subject peoples. The
old oppressors became the new oppressed; the old subjects became
the new masters. This may have
given satisfaction to many, including myself, but it did not serve to
eliminate national hatreds and the
threat cf war inherent therein. And
the case of the new subject peoples
was often as valid as that of the
repressed nationalities before 1914.
Few historians now believe that
the Central Powers would have won
the war if the Entente had been
compelled to fight alone without
American aid. The best they could
have done would have been to fight
the war to draw. Then we would
have had that "peace without victory," which Woodrow Wilson advocated in his most statesmanlike
address during tile whole World
War era. The Germans were ardent
for peace on fair terms in 1916.
But their advances were turned
down contemptuously by the Allies
after they felt sure that they could
