What a soiiy mistake to lalk aUont the right of Mexicans to rule their
own affairs mid tho duty of tho I'nlted States to nld them In that aspira
tion. They aic not fit to govern, hut onlj to ho governed.
From tlio time tho first Pharoahs of Kgypt originated
tho immaculate concept ion of monarchs down to the twen
tieth century Gorman kaiser proclaiming the divine right
of kings, it has over been the axiom of tho classes that thu
masses wore not fit to govern themselves the many fit
only to bo governed, that is, to be exploited, by the few.
Slavery, feudalism and monarchy are founded upon
this doctrine. Injustice, oppression and war are its
nrdduets. The nations of antionity crumbled beneath it
and modern Kurope is being desolated by it.
The magna cliarta and lOnglish civil wars, the Ameri
can declaration of independence, the hYonch revolution
were protests against it. The effectiveness of the strug
gles against this soul-throttling propaganda spell the story
of the progress of humanity.
"They aro not fit to govern, but only to be governed,"
says tho'Oi'ogonian. That is what King John said to the
barons at Kuunymodo, what tlio SStuarts told rJnglanu,
what King (leorge remarked of the American colonies,
what the Bourbons replied to France, what the kaiser
thinks of Europe-the same old cry that tyranny has
echoed down the corridors oi time since the birth ol the
Who is fit to govern, without consent of the gov
erned? If by govern is meant the rule of might, any
physically superior power, any foreign tyrant fills the def
inition. But-such exploitation is contrary to the Ameri
can ideal, antagonistic to the American conception ol lib
erty. Does the Orogoniau mean that the United States, which
fought for liberty, should assume the role of oppressor of
foreign peoples? Does it mean thai the United States is
fit to govern a foreign people with alien ideals and civil
ization' Why the United States has not yet learned to
rightly govern itself. A thousand wrongs at homo cry for
remedy a million unemployed call for work and the
bread line of the nation is as long as Uelgiiim's.
To talk of disinterested aid to assist Mexicans in gov
erning themselves, savs the Orogoniau, is a "sorry mis-
'take." Jlumanitarianism jh also a "sorry mistake" when
it conflicts with sordid commercialism. Altruism has no
place in the tory decalogue it is I'eplaced by the grasping
greed of selfishness.
Perhaps the Orogoniau considers itself infallible
enough to govern Mexico as Hearst and Otis evidently
do. .It is probable, tor only a tew years ago it styled Ore
gon "tho fool of the family" for giving the people a chance
to express their wishes on men and measures.
As dictator for .Mexico, the Orogoniau would probably
duplicate Uuerta's bloody career in carrying out its tory
propaganda. It would onlv moan one trouble more loi
that troubled nation but it would bo a great relief to Ore
gon to get rid ol it.
