ABSTRACT
Focuses on formation of a liberal task force under the leadership of Senator George W. Norris of Nebraska on the issues of the peace and democracy in the post-war world. Attempt to create a world free of poverty and anarchy and racial and religious discrimination; Norris as the task force's ideal leader combines within himself all the currents that must go into swelling the stream of progressive thought and action, that is, the Populist tradition of the Midwestern farmers, the militant support of trade-union organization and the raising of the living standards of the workers and the humanist aspirations of the progressive middle class; View that if such a body has strength, wisdom and militancy, it can do an enormous amount in uniting progressives for the continuation, rather than the abandonment, of the principles of the New Deal, for support to President Franklin Roosevelt on those issues where he is being opposed by the reactionaries of both parties, for heartening the President and the administration on those issues where they show a tendency to slacken and above all, for freedom, full employment and a democratic world order.
