ABSTRACT
The article presents a testimony delivered by the author on June 27, 1947, before the U.S. House Committee on Armed Services. Perhaps the most conclusive lesson from the history of the last 30 years is that the military unpreparedness of the U.S. was a major factor in making the last two wars possible. No democratizing influence can be conceived that bringing all young men together at about the same age for a stated period on an absolutely equal footing. The world placed its hope for peace and the betterment of mankind in the United Nations when it was set up. But now it is in the formative stages of its development, will be impotent to maintain world peace in the foreseeable future.
