The Promoters Do Not Fight
- The Philadelphia Inquirer says:
“ The fact is that war is gener­
ally promulgated by those who
have the most to gain and least to
lose in the conflict, whose own
skins are safe, and who are en­
abled to drag after them all of
their followers by holding up a
‘sacred banner of patriotism’
which is often false. Economic
pressure has had much to do with
war, but ambition has had more.”
tiuite right; and it might have
added that the doctrine of frenz­
ied preparedness is promulgated
by those who have most to gain
by army and navy contracts.
They also use the ‘sacred banner
o f patriotism" to conceal the sor­
did pecuniary interests back of
the oropaganda.—Commoner.
“ The Doctor Knows”
Every one has heard the story
o f the little boy who, when asked
how he knew a neighbor was go­
ing to die, responded: "Th e doctor
said he could not live ‘til morning,
and the doctor knows what kind
o f medicine he gave him.” So
these jingoes must think they
know what kind o f diplomacy we
are going to use when they say
that we can not keep out of war.

last year; that the estimate for
increased army and navy amounts
to $812,000,000 for the next six
years; that for new war vessels
and more men in the navy the
estimate is, in round figures
.$500,000,000; and that the plan«
contemplate an army o f more
than a million trained men within
the next six year-
Is such a war establishment
justified? I f it is justified, how
will the government raise the
hundreds o f millons o f dollars to
pay for it? And at the end o f
six years how many more hund­
reds o f millions will be demanded
for the same purpose?
Let it be taken for granted that
we need a larger navy; let it ^be
admited that we need an adequ­
ate navy.
Secretary Daniels
would haTe all the new ships
built by the navy department,
and would have the government
manufacture its own ammunition
and other supplies for the navy.
But what will congress do about
the secretary’s
recommenda­
tions? Congress is not yet eman­
cipated from the unholy influence
o f the war trust.
It is evident that the war trust
is very busy creating sentiment
for a greater navy and a greater
army.
For years it has been
busy at that job. Thursday o f
this week came a dispatch from
Washington saying that confiden­
tial reports received at the navy
department reveal that Great
Britain and -Germany have al­
ready anticipated the increases
proposed in our new plan o f naval
preparedness; that by 1921$ Great
Britain will have 80 dread naughts
o f th** first class, and that Ger­
many will have 33; and that eng-
land is planning to have as many
warships as Germany and the
United States combined.

October 16 came a dispatch
from Washington saying that
“ employers troughout the United

ment for spending hundreds of
millions o f dollars in preparing
for war are the men who would
reap millions and tens o f mil­
lions o f dollars from the large
appriations— if private contracts
are let for armor, ammunition
and other supplies. Not only is
there a war trust in this country,
but it is well known that the war
trust is international, and it has
for years deceived and cheated
the people o f the United States,
o f France, o f Great Britain, of
Germany and other countries.
Its business is to deceive and
scare the people, and then cheat
them.
If, as is reported from Wash­
ington, President Wilson is in
favor o f the enormous expendi­
tures proposed, we can not doubt
his absolute sincerity. As the
servant o f the people it is his
duty to recommend what he be­
lieves the people want. It is not
his duty, and certainly it is not
his desire, to tell the people what
they may or may not have. It
may be that he has received from
the magazines and newspapers
the impression that public opin­
ion in this country is overwhelm­
ingly in favor o f incurring the
enormous expenses for increased
preparedness. It must be ad­
mitted that the preponderance o f
noise is on that side.
