IN DEF.LNTNG the cause of the European war, the Sat
urday Evening Post places the blame upon militarism,
deelariuj? the war burdens of the groat powers had al-
ready Ikicoiiic unbearable
y iHieomc unbonrable when uermany "raised nor ox
xlinavy war contribution of a quarter of n billion dol
by drastic special taxes on top of heavy ordinary
tion,' forcing the other nations to do likewise, and
"there must be a let down
stand on tiptoe indefinitely," all efforts to reduce arma
ment being rejected by the Kaiser. Concluding, the Post
The proximate cause Austria's irritation ngnlnsv Scrvta was trivial
onoupli. Hut tho real causa was national Jealousy, suspicion nud hatred
carefully nursed and exploited everywhere by the military class and tho
noisy few who find n profit In war. The grand stock in trade of these
fomentcrs of war is that barbarous patriotism! which Is merely a modern
extrusion of tho tribal sentiment thnt made tho Indian who lived on the
south sldo of tho creek consider it a pious duty to kill ono living on ttk
north sldo whenever ho got a chance. Whatever the cost of Ihls war,
thero will bo another somo day It Frenchmen are still taught to hato Ger
mans, Germans to hate Husstnns, and so on.
"What is patriotism i
Webster defines it as love of ones country; the passion
of inspiring one to serve one's country.
Samuel Johnson, who wrote the first dictionary, de
clared patriotism was the last reuigo of scoundrels.
In connection with the European war, the latter is the
best definition, for crowned scoundrels have made selfish
use of unselfish love of country to create discord, strife
Patriotism generally means loyalty, devotioii and sac
rifice for tho ruling family or government, not for the land
itself or for the people inhabiting the land.
Love of one's country has for centuries been implanted
in the human breast, and might be called a primitive in
stinct. Rut love of one's country in a national sense is a
cultivated instinct. The world smash that followed the
fall of the Roman empire left Europe in anarchy. Prom
the invading barbaric hordes of the dark ago.4 nations
gradually emerged, but for
meant feudal loyalty, winch is still its meaning to tho
crowned bends of today.
The fighting of the middle nges was seldom from patri
otic motives. The fighting men were bound to follow their
baron. As the power of the barons declined and that of
the monarch increased, the fighting was done by mercen
aries, devoid of patriotism. The religious wars which made
Europe a shambles for centuries were not actuated by
patriotism, though they aided in the evolution of the
nation and national feeling.
It was not until the threatened invasion of the Spanish
armada in the closing years of
the national consciousness was
The danger united all factions in defense of the nation and
for the first time patriotism was in evidence.
Wars of the succeeding centuries emphasized the
national differences, but it took the French revolution to
develop both French and German patriotism. To the sim
ple Russian peasant patriotism consists in-going to war at
the command of the "Little Father," regardless of the
righteousness of the cause, while the more enlightened
German peasant is taught from infancy that people of all
nations are natural enemies and that patriotism consists
in being willing to murder or be murdered at the command
of the kaiser.
It is a barbarous patriotism and primitive statesman
ship that teaches one nation to profit at the expense of the
other. Co-operation among nations is as essential for suc
cess as among individuals, and lack of this co-operation
the effort to maintain relations that benefit only a single
nation, is largely to blame for the international discord
and jealousy that result in war. Each nation resents the
effort of other nations to profit at its expense, each pre
tends the other is intent upon injuring it, and that arm
aments are essential for protection.
Patriotism has no connection with barbarism, and civ
ilization demands that the two cease association.
