That stance prevented any serious attempt to distinguish between nationalistic movements and Communist drives or between ver- sions of communism. No prudent cal- culations about war in Southeast Asia were possible given the moralistic mood of the good being obliged to thwart the bad. Passing of laws limiting the presi- dent's warmaking powers would not safeguard the nation i{ a similar mood developed again. The barriers would simply be swept away. are no assurances that mis- takes will not be repeated. Perhaps the best chance of avoiding a repeti- tion of a folly like walking blindly into tiie Vietnam morass lies in the process of a people growing more mature. More study of history might make people less vulnerable to emo- tionalism.
