WHY WE ARE
AT WAR WITH
EPHRAIM DOUGLASS ADAMS
Executive Head, History Depart
Lsland Stanford Junior University
DEMOCRACY VERSUS AUTOCRACY
It Is commonly said that this war
Is one In which America was forced
to take part In order to "make the
world safe for democracy." What
does the phrase mean?
The theories and sets of the Ger
man military autocracy definitely deny
the right of the people of a atate to
rule themselves. The 0rman peoptr.
In spite of forms of government that
make a pretense of popular control,
have no such actual control over their
governors as exlBts In democratically
organized nations In those nations
the governors ran be removed by a
vote of the people In a general elet
tion; In Oermauy the people have not
The aristocracy of Germany under
stand this difference, and are afraid
of the spread of democracy In Ger
many. The whole, much-admired "effi
ciency" of Germany Is primarily due
to a desperate and constant effort by
(ietinany's rulers to divert tbo German
lieople from thoughts of self govern
ment, by offering them material pros
lierlty. And the rulers have suc
ceeded One of the causes of this
war was the necessity, by still fur
ther "glorious acquisitions of terri
tory," to hush the murmuring of
political discontent In Germany. Vic
tory In war. every so often, is a nee-
rtut'j nt the G I I.I ill :. . ill. "il ll
for aot til as much as for national
and political reasons that we must
flx our minds Incessantly upon war."
"Success Is necessary to gain Influ
ence over the masses," wrote Bern
hardt; and General Von Blsslng, just
before his denth. wrote a "Political
Testament," since largely circulated In
Germany. In which he argued for the
retontlon of Belgium, berauie, unlem
if torre annexed, the prrnliae of the
militaty autocrat-y would rctrtue e
Are we are the Allies then fight
ing to impote upon Germany a dlf
ferent system; is that the meaning of
"making the world safe for democ
racy?" KIIIhi Root says that American
democratic Ideals Include "liberty not
for theumelvea alone but for all who
are oppressed." Lloyd George asserts
that If all countries had been demo
cratically Organised, this war would
not have taken place; that this war
will determine not merely Interna
tional relations, tint will affect the
llve.t of peOBtN MMJIMN their SIM ml
tons, for genei at Ions to come; that
this war Is to end In "international
democracy," i. e., In liberty, equal
ity, ami fraternity, ticticcen nations,
great and small General Smuts, for
merly a soldier against Great Britain
In South Africa, Kays that the essence
of this war Is the question whether
governments should be founded on
military might or on "principles of
equity. Justice, fairness and equulity "
Various writers have depicted this
war as a test of democracy, to de
lei'iiilne whether democracy can ad
Just Itself to an emergency so that by
sheer efficiency It shall at least equal
the efficiency of a military autocracy,
and assert that on this ground alone
the tut tit aa government of all the na
tions of the world Is at stake. Will
Crooks, the British labor leader, says
this war "Is a people's war. We are all
In It, the man at the village pump and
In the fields, the blacksmith, the car
penter and Joiner, the shipwright, nnd
the man of leisure. We are standing
together becauie toe are fighting for
Yes, this war Is one in which Ideals
of government, of Individual liberty,
of civilization Itsolf are In conflict.
Democracy Is lined up against autoc
racy The war Is in absolute fact a
war of Ideals. But we are not fight
ing to Impose our Ideals upon any
nation. What we are lighting for.
In "making the world safe for democ
racy." is to eret'en a militant autoc
racy from imposing tts auththr .tint
its ideals upon us We are ready to
keep on minding our own business
ami to let other nations do the same.
A military autocracy that proposes
to conquer the world must be de
bated, to the point where It renounces
meddling with other nations, great or
small, or there la no peace in the
world. That la the Issue at stake,
md In It rests our safety and the
lafcty of the world.

THIS WAR IS ONK OK BBLk I
"Here," soys V.veryman. "was a
Kalscrdom SSskiOg world domination
and perilously neur encompassing
It unless the world united to repel
him." Thus the radical land reformer
sees the Issue. Is there any one tttlll
blind to II?
But were we in America direct
threatened? We were, and we artt
threatened. A German book published
In the United States In 1914 and
railed "Truth About Gern..i:iy," sought
to Inflame us against Kiiclimd and
France, and to persuade ns that Amer
ica and Germany had common ideals,
characteristics, and methods. ( May
God aave us!) It argued smoethly:
"Two nations united by such common
Inclinations and Ideals, boldness of en
terprise, farsightedness, quickness of
decision, admiration for intellectual
achievements, can not help being ex
ceedingly congenial to each other.
Pleasant words but a lying tongue
Would Germany, once master of Eu
rope, remember our "conpenlallty."
and be a good neighbor In the Amer
icas? The Germans when writing for hums
consumption hold a different language
about world relations and "neighbors."
"Formerly German thought was shut
up In her German corner, but now
the world shall have its coat cut ac
cording to German measure, a. d as
far as our swords flash and German
bloods flows, the circle of the earth
shall come under the tutelage of Ger
man activity." "A sturdy German
egoism must characterize all political
action. . . . The first principle of
our policy, both at home and abroad,
must be that In everything that hap
pens the Germans should come off
best, and the others should have a
had time of It." A nice, congenial
llut Germany, when honcnt, d'r," tly
avows her purpose, ultimately, against
America. We must "wake up," or we
will be the easy "next step" In her
ambitions "Oermany . . . may In
less than two centuries succeed In
dominating the whole globe ... If
only It can In time strike out a 'new
course,' and definitely break with Anglo-American
methods of government,
and with the state-destroying itleala
of the Revolution." She Is trying out
her "new course" now. "One thing
alone can prcflt the German peeple:
tbo acquisition of new territory, . .
that alone can really promote the
diffusion, the growth, and the deep
ening of Germanism." "Before seeke
lng to found a Greater Germany in
other continents, we must soek to
create a Greater Germany in Central
Europe." "We must . . Bee to
it that the outcome of our next suo
cessful war must be the acquisition
of colonies" "We must muke room
for an empire of Germanic race which
shall number 100,000,000 inhabitants,
lu order that we may hold our own
against masses such as those of Russia
and the United States."
Still further. It is no longer a secret
that Germany, while we were still
unprepared were neutral and while
Germany still ostensibly sought our
friendship, secretly planned, when vic
torious in Europe, to pick :i quarrel
with us and wring from us pai t of the
costs of her European war.
If the American "easy chair' is
still too comfortable for serious
thought of what Oermany SMtWal to
do tn us, then America deserves the
fate In store for her. This Is tha
material side of our peril, but tiiera
Is another and deeper side.
Tills war 1b our war, to secure tur
purposes in national and In Interna
tional development. If Oermany should
i(ii, her principles must triumph and
force alone must rule the world, with
the strong exploiting the earth. It
the war ends In a drawn battle, with
Oermany unchanged In Ideals and pur
i.nses. all that Is left of the world
will be compelled to engage In the
race of military preparedness, and the
world will be forced to adopt Qer
many's methods now so hateful to us.
A Germany undefeated would force
us to destroy the very basis of our
government, our policy, our social and
Industrial life to devote ourselvea,
capital and labor, persons anil prop
erty, to one object-a mighty mili
tarism. Unless we win this war tha
mlghtest, most upsetting, m: far
reaching change this nation has eer
known is upon us. We are nghtln
for liberty to continue In our accus
tomed line of progress.
This Is the sixth of a aeries of taa
articles by Professor Adams.
One of the eternal mysteries will
be, what did old Father Time do
with tjiat idle hour when the sche
dule wus changed?
