Honor Thy Father

Johnson, Gerald W.
October 1955
New Republic;10/3/55, Vol. 133 Issue 14, p18
The article is about the doctrine of Momism as estimated by writer Philip Wylie. The Pentagon is taking Wylie's doctrine of Momism as seriously as the world ever took Utilitarianism or Empiricism. The doctrine of Momism assumes that every American fighting man is dominated by his mother and he follows her whatever she is or has been. Commissions in the armed forces cannot be issued to men who are doomed by Momism. Momism seems to have reached its furthest bound in armed services as the United States Air Force seems to be proceeding on the theory that it is the normal fate of an American soldier to surrender.
