Madison Wisconsin State Journal (Newspaper) - June 13, 1920, Madison, Wisconsin
Foundation of Many a Poltl i Cal Renoul Ion in a vehement fax Lacy established by emphasis and re tettion. The Man who said Tho Moon was made of Green cheese was fairly Safe in his time because in those Good old Days science had projected no rockets at our Stellar neighbors and the Man in the Moon Wae noncommittal. Politics dogmas of doubtful Merit stand up fro n year to year because the average individual lacks approach to the facts Ani such specialists As Are qualified to speak Are either too technical or too academic for the ears of the crowd. The vices of mendacity and evasion Are common to All parties political convention leaders evidently feeling that if they can t fool Al the people All the time at least they May Hope to fool some of the people Al the time and All of the amp people some of the time. The old for popular approval found in the Republican National platform lacks none of the tricks of the Trade indulgence in which May not offset periods in which it is sound and san a Cert for the Public knows that it is composed of a series or compromises and As a whole la As unsatisfactory to the convention a to the country. The a Best we could get Quot is every Many set of Plantation and that the Best is no better is largely due to the fact that All the Little human beings who made the platform were wrong on some things. Him that Quot the beet we could get really Means a the Best we would a a a these Are new times. Men have new thoughts. A new Era lies before i it there is nothing in he Republican platform to indicate that political leaders have bad a new Access of vision Are inspiration. One feels sadly the slow drag of dead weight in the platform As of old age heavy with the bulk of Dogma. It strains at Points it dare not make. Caters to prejudice which it should not see. There is Little in it to offend the disloyal nothing to inspire a Patriot nothing to uplift a people. Yet it is not hopeless. It represents the Best efforts of More err less mediocre men to avoid destroying the party s chances by fighting among themselves. Platforms Are conventional things the Patch work of Many minds catch phrased and elusive. They Seldom epitomise ideals of the rank and file. Rather they Are the talk of the old men. Speaking the language of the past. They exert Little control Over actual party practices. The old guard that wrote the ish Republican platform is dying. Penrose dictates Fossil philosophy from his sick bed. These men Ere in the ruts of a Road that leads to dissolution. The impression they made upon the convention is not stamped upon the nation. There is Young blood in the land. In every Hamlet in the country there Are Young americans capable of constructive criticism of the document upon which the Republican party acting through incompetent proxies rests its Case. In every University Are men who would begin a treatise upon the nations need with those great fundamentals. The Homo and the school untouched in the Chicago pronouncement excepting through their details. In every City Are scores for whom the War has illuminated those great problems of humanity the solution of which lies in an enlightened International policy. These Are the Hope of democracy. They Are the sinews of the great political parties. If the coming administration does not react favourably to their demands. 1922 will see new Lames drying in the political battlefields.
