Might is Right?

It is terrible to those of us who half a century ago were born  into a world of peace and order; who cherished legitimate hopes of stability and gradual development; and who now have to live through the dishonesty and immortality of the very historical happenings. That bluff, impudence, and aggression succeed where a decent readiness to co-operate failed. The first seeds of this new historical demoralisation, let us remember, were indeed planted, not by Fascism or Communism, but by the frauds, the imbecilities, and the impotence of democratic statesmanship, which led us into the World War; then into the ensuing injustices and betrays of the Peace Treaties.
