WHY WE ARE
AT WAR WITH
Executive Head, History Depart
Leland Stanford Junior University
"Th ebjtet of this war Is to dallwtr
the f r ptoplctt of the world from ths
mnact and the actual powtr of a vail
military ttabllihmtnt controlled by an
lrriponatbt eovarnmtnt, which, having
tccratly planned to dominate ths world,
procssdM to carry out ths plan wlthou;
regard althsr to the sacred obligations
of treaty or the long-established prac
tices and longcherlshed principles of In
tarnatlonal actlen and honor) . , , This
powsr Is not the Oerman people. It Is
the ruthless master of ths Oerman pao
file. ... It Is our business to see to
t that the history of the rest of the
world Is no longer left to Its handling."
President Wilson, August 27, 1917.
TUB NATION AND MORAL DUTIES
The rulers of Germany believe that
they hayo .the right to prevail over all
other nations. They also believe that
the potcer of the state Is the only ob
ject for which its rulers should struj;
gle. Still further, they believe that
moral principles and Ideas have no
place In determining the actions of
the state, since the sole duty of the
Btato is to get power. This Is Gor
man political philosophy. American
political philosophy, fcom the very be
ginning of our institutions, has op
posed this theory, and now In this war
is fighting against it. For the Ger
man theory necessarily carries with It
utter denial of the claims of moral j
.Cronus, ui iniernawon&i rigm, oi Hu
man decency and chivalry.
The German historian, Treltschke,
at whose feet princes and rulers sat,
eagerly absorbing his teachings, at-,
voted his life to spreading thls-gosuel i
of Power. It is true, he said sneer'
ingly, that "a stock of Inherited con:
ceptlons of Integrity and morality Is I
a necessity for government," (useful,
that subjects of the state be obedient),
but "the end all and be all of a
state Is Power." "The state is the
sole judge of the morality of Its own
actions. It is, in fact, above morality,
or. In other words, whatever is nec
essary Is moral."
From this it follows. In International
relations, that there Is no rule or
guide to conduct except self-interest.
In this present war a follower of
Treltschke. one of the leading common-school
educators of Germany,
Klrschenstelner of Munich, drives
home the theory. "The great lesson
which the German people has had to
learn Is to think In terms of power.
. . . Let no one here say thnt
small states, too, can have a national
life of their own. True, so long as
the great states around them allow
them to exist. But any day may re
the end of their existence, in spite
of ull treaties to the contrary. . . .
Neither alliance t nor treaties provide
the least security. . . . There are
no ethical friendships between states
in our day, ... There are only
friendships of convenience. And friend
ships of convenience last Just as long
as the convenience Itself." . . .
Professor Eulenberg of Leipzig sums
it up, "Ail ethical considerations are
completely alien to the state nnd tho
state must therefore resolutely keep
them at arm's length." t
Can we wonder that the German
Foreign Secretary spoke of the broken
treaty with Belgium as a "scrap of
paper?" or that the school children
of Germany celebrated the sinking of
the LusitaniaT or that German agents
in America, smoothly friendly In ap
pearance, secretly plotted, before we
were in the war, to destroy our In
dustries, our raiiwnys, even our lives?
Is there no such thing any more
as a common humanity no "decent
respect to the opinion of' mankind,"
as Thomas Jefferson stated It In tho
Declaration of Independence? Is our
ideal of righteousness, yes, even of
unselfishness, Impossible in interna
tional politics? This tear, if Germany
is defeated, may decide these ques
tions, but if Germany wins, the strug
gle has but fust begun.
This American democracy of our
denies, and has always denied, the
German theory; it asserts i-hat the
laws which formulate the duties of
men toward each other are binding
upon nations equally with Individuals.
For centuries civilization has been
slowly advancing from Ignorance,
prejudice, and selfishness toward sym
pathy, understanding, and a desire to
see justice done, whether between In
dividuals or nations. The "be all and
end a) I" of a state Is not Power it
And the German government has
left us In no doubt as to the results
of her theory, In application. That
government has broken a solemn
treaty with Belgium, ordered the mur
der of Innocent hostages, bombarded
unfortified towns, torpedoed unarmed
passenger ships, destroyed works of
art, where they could riot be tarried
to Oermany, plotted secret war against
neutral nations all of them actions
she once pledged herself to forego
has lost, In uhort, all souse, appar
ently, that she Is dragging the former
good name of the German people
through a mire of dishonor, the .stain
of which will not be removed for
generations. Against this mad phi
losophy and mad government the war
must be waged, until they are de
feated, or there Is no safety for men
or nations.' ,

articles by Professor Adams.
