Presents information on a number of topics related to politics and government in the United States; Efforts to dissolve Keep America Out of War Congress and its reorganization into Provisional Committee Toward a Democratic Peace. Views that the New Deal, the political and economic doctrines suggested by the U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt, has already so softened that the moral fiber of the young citizens that they will continue to believe they are the creatures of their government, not its masters; Government jobholders labor only about two-thirds of the year's days, thus being afforded a maximum opportunity to read, and deeply to contemplate, the history of Rome.
