British and American Liberals

November 1954
New Republic;11/22/54, Vol. 131 Issue 21, p122
This article discusses issues related to liberalism. Kingsley Martin, the editor of The New Statesman and Nation, in his reply to the author Richard Strout's comments on that British weekly begins by stating that "the fact that the New Republic should publish Richard Strout's article shows in itself how seriously things have gone wrong between American and British liberals." To argue that guns are not enough is to" labor the obvious among liberals. To argue that guns are unnecessary is to invite attack. For the truth is that the present partnership of Great Britain and the U.S. is still concealed and illicit. As long as people refuse to affirm that they share a common destiny the stronger member of the partnership is bound to exert its power and make unilateral decisions, while the weaker is dragged protesting in its wake.
