    The development of the doctrine of international arbitration,
    considered from the standpoint of its ultimate benefits to the
    human race, is the most vital movement of modern times. In its
    relation to the well-being of the men and women of this and
    ensuing generations, it exceeds in importance the proper solution
    of various economic problems which are constant themes of
    legislative discussion and enactment.

It was the human spirit itself that failed at Paris. It is no

It was the human spirit itself that failed at Paris. It is no
use passing judgments and making scapegoats of this or that
individual statesman or group of statesmen. Idealists make a
great mistake in not facing the real facts sincerely and
resolutely. They believe in the power of the spirit, in the
goodness which is at the heart of things, in the triumph which is
in store for the great moral ideals of the race. But this great
faith only too often leads to an optimism which is sadly and
fatally at variance with actual results. It is the realist and
not the idealist who is generally justified by events. We forget
that the human spirit, the spirit of goodness and truth in the
world, is still only an infant crying in the night, and that the
struggle with darkness is as yet mostly an unequal
struggle. . . . Paris proved this terrible truth once more. It
was not Wilson who failed there, but humanity itself. It was not
the statesmen that failed, so much as the spirit of the peoples
behind them.

I am the last man in the world to say that the succor which is
given us from America is not in itself something to rejoice at
greatly. But I also say that I can see more in the knowledge
that America is going to win a right to be at the conference
table when the terms of peace are discussed. . . . It would have
been a tragedy for mankind if America had not been there, and
there with all her influence and power.

To Woodrow Wilson, the apparent failure, belongs the undying
honor, which will grow with the growing centuries, of having
saved the "little child that shall lead them yet." No other
statesman but Wilson could have done it. And he did it.

Rules of conduct which govern men in their relations to one
another are being applied in an ever-increasing degree to
nations. The battlefield as a place of settlement of disputes is
gradually yielding to arbitral courts of justice.

If we suppose a sufficient righteousness and intelligence in men
to produce presently, from the tremendous lessons of history, read more

If we suppose a sufficient righteousness and intelligence in men
to produce presently, from the tremendous lessons of history, an
effective will for a world peace--that is to say, an effective
will for a world law under a world government--for in no other
fashion is a secure world peace conceivable--in what manner may
we expect things to move towards this end? . . . It is an
educational task, and its very essence is to bring to the minds
of all men everywhere, as a necessary basis for world
cooperation, a new telling and interpretation, a common
interpretation, of history.
