Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - August 27, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news these Days by George e. Sokolsky the Price of politics the major problem that faces the so called democracies is whether they can survive As representative governments under the terrific pressures of the totalitarian forces let Loose by the revolutions that accompanied world War i and world War ii. We have already witnessed the disappearance of nearly All the free governments created by the treaties following these wars. We have already witnessed a revolution in France which May end the fourth Republic and which has established some kind of dictatorship under general de Gaulle who is Labouring to prevent this from occurring. China which under the Kuomintang from Sun Yat sen to Chiang Kai Shek attempted to establish some form of constitutional government finally failed and the communist took Over All but Formosa. Too the test will of course come in great Britain and the United j states where representative government based upon capitalistic economic achieved its highest form great Britain that economically cannot be self sustaining was erected upon a system of colonies and dependent states which the Home government defended by a Navy that kept the sea lanes open for All nations. From Elizabeth i to George v. The Navy was Britain s strength. That is lost what is left is prestige and wit. Two not valueless imponderables. But can great Britain survive its trend toward suicide so exp presslely represented in Parli ment by the Labourie Leader. Hugh Gaitskell and by the newspaper the Quot Manchester guardian i too this British trend toward suicide is an amazing phenomenon because obviously the British have Only Wisdom and know How to offer the world their manufactures Are necessary for any country because most of the markets of the world will ultimately be supplied by those nations which possess within their boundaries the raw materials from which durable or Consumers goods Are made. Such countries As great Britain and Japan in a Quarter of a Century will not be Able to compete with the United states the soviet group red China or with a latin american group entered in Brazil because the import of raw materials is becoming increasingly costly and nations will not go to War for Trade As they do not go to War for dynasties the United states possessed Power in 1945 with great Britain France and nationalist China As partners. It frittered the Opportunity away in an orgy of idealism entered on the United nations. By 1948, it was altogether Clear that soviet Russia had taken full advantage of american sentimentalism and had gone off on an imperialistic spree which showed its full Force in the korean War <1946-1954. O a a As Long As the United states believed that it enjoyed the monopoly of the atom bomb it believed that time was working in its favor. By unbelievable flukes and carelessness. It permitted the atom bomb and the Hydrogen bomb developments to be stolen by or. Klaus Fuchs the Rosenbergs or. Bruno Ponte Corvo and others. The United states did not actually lose the bomb the scientific data concerning which would have become known anyhow in due course. What the United states lost was the overwhelming advantage of time. Recognizing this one principal Factor in this situation soviet Russia starved its people robbed its satellites brought the world close to War but it closed the time Gap in scientific development. In fact. In some respects. Soviet Russia s Rush for time resulted in achievements swifter than those achieved in the United states. Sputnik was an example. Too the delays in the United states Are generally attributed to faulty education not enough engineers mathematicians Etc. The explanation is too simple. In the disclosure of the difficulties of general James Gavin and Admiral Hyman Rickover we witness another difficulty namely that our governmental machine works too slowly and too ineffectively in its receptivity of new ideas and new methods. This we As not so when Franklin d. Roosevelt accepted the recommendations of Albert Einstein and Alexander Sachs and created the Manhattan project which made the atom bomb in the most profound secrecy but it is True today.
