April 1941
New Republic;4/21/41, Vol. 104 Issue 16, p528
Presents the author's statement on being charged with abandoning his pacifist stance on the war in a letter sent to him. Report that the letter accused the author of having abandoned the principles of pacifism in the international field; View that he is a warmonger, and that he was partly to blame for the fact that the U.S. would probably be tricked into war on behalf of British imperialism and would become a fascist country in the process; View of the author that war is a negation of all the best values of civilization, that it is the worst possible way of settling international disputes and that it could be abolished if people had enough collective good will and intelligence; Author's view that the United States should never fight except in self-defense, but should certainly do so when its own safety is imperiled; Views of isolationists on the Second World War; Belief of the author that a declaration of war now might prove a handicap rather than an aid to the assistance the U.S. is giving to Great Britain, China, Yugoslavia, and Greece.
