A New Mood in Europe

Gorrell, Frank
August 1953
New Republic;8/10/53, Vol. 129 Issue 2, p13
The article focuses on new foreign policies of the U.S. Government as Cold War fronts disintegrate. Christian Europe of the Center-Right is crumbling. There is a new mood in Europe, a mood the United States has not yet recognized. And the fall of politician Alcide De Gasperi in Italy is but dramatic evidence of that new mood at work and of Western Europe's rejection of a U.S. leadership, which fails to recognize it. Both, the protest and the crumbling have been hidden by pro-U.S. European politicians who have substituted, in their reports to the United States, wish fulfillment for realistic appraisals of political trends and political possibilities. U.S. President Dwight David Eisenhower and Secretary of State John Foster Dulles have been told what they wanted to hear. And they in turn have told the Republican Party what it wanted to hear. The result has been a new situation in Europe: but the same old U.S. policy. While President Eisenhower and his advisers assumed that what was good for the Republican Party was good for the world, countries and parties in both Eastern and Western Europe began turning back toward their accustomed external and internal policies.
