A Changing World
War has turned the world upside down and
inside out, but in addition to those changes
there have been other alterations in our econ
omy and even our thoughts are bending to the
need of the times.
In a challenge to business, Eric Johnston,
President of the United States Chamber of
Commerce, clearly proves that the old world
is undergoing a change?a sort of bloodless rev
olution aside from the war. It is news when a
representative of the old staid Chamber of Com
merce comes to the front with such a challenge,
but in that challenge is a new hope for a bet
ter land bye and bye. While Mr. Johnston rec
ognizes the miracle of American production, he
recognizes something else, too. He says, "No one
with eyes to see and a heart to feel will deny
that the system has also given us results of an
other kind. It has failed to prevent periods of
tragic depression and the frightful waste rep
resented by cycles of mass unemployment."
Mr. Johnston goes on to say, "The forces
of individual enterprise and unrelenting com
petition gave America the world's highest stan
dard of living, including our proud standards
of political freedoms. But they did not com
mensurately arouse man's sense of obligation
to his fellow man. They did not harmonize the
relations between capital and labor, between
business and farmers, between producers and
consumers. The emphasis on individual effort
and private reward too frequently was carried
to the point of obscuring community respon
"Let's recognize these frankly," Mr. Johns
ton urges. "Then we shall be able to conserve
the constructive and useful values in the Am
erican way of life. The threat to those values is
from two directions."
Mr. Johnston points out that, first, there are
the ultra-conservatives who dislike change, any
sort of change, and "hence would turn back the
clock of history." Secondly, according to the
recognized spokesman of big business, there
are the clamorous collectivists, call them radi
cals or whatever you like. Then Mr. Johnston
strikes deep at the problem confronting this
country when he suggests that there is a mid
dle ground of reality somewhere between the
We must adjust our positions to a changing
world, and the failures and shortcomings are
chargeable to those who hold the reins of lead
ership and not to the masses, however sorry,
indifferent or antagonistic they are. The prob
lems facing this nation's economy are covered
over by unusual events, but they are buried
deep and will rise again to plague us to the
death if they are not solved or adjusted to meet
a changing world. They will not be solved when
we excuse our own failure and shortcomings
by pointing out the failures and shortcomings
We think we have reached a stage of perfec
tion when.we pay the common laborer just en
ough for him to clad his person with a pair of
overalls and a jumper and provide his table with
fatback, cornbread and molasses. If we give him
more he will spend it at the liquor store. In
many cases that is true, and that is one prob
lem which can partly be explained. Our lead
ers, for one reason or another, opened the li
quor store. It is legal for the common man to en
ter there. Yet. we establish and legalize a sys
tem and condemn one man for entering there
while we think it is perfectly all right for oth
ers to patronize the same system.
We are ready for a change for ourselves,
whether it is good or bad for us, but we are not
quite ready to recognize a change for others.
This changing world offers a big problem,
and before that problem can be solved with any
success at all, those on the extremes have got
to travel toward the middle, surrender their
pet grievances and recognize the need for
change and the necessity of mending our ways.
With the problem staring us in the face, we
would do well to remember that the Reds did
not revolt in Russia because of lust for blood;
they revolted because too many were starving
to death while others in their own land enjoy
ed the luxuries of life and at the expense of the
starving. The aristocratic leaders there appar
ently thought the common people would throw
away and squander if they were given even a
subsistence wage or consideration. That plan,
despite its long life, finally gave way, and hu
man blood was spilled in quantities in the streets
of the cities and around the great church build
ings that held no meaning for the common, de
Yes, there's a middle ground, and if we would
save ourselves we must seek out and stand on
that ground where we can without malice or
hate make adjustments to meet the demands
of a changing world.
The earth that God gave to man for his home,
sustenance and support, should never be the
possession of any man, corporation, society or
unfriendly government. An individual or en
terprise should hold no more than they have
in actual use in the prudent management of
their legitimate business and not this much
when it creates an exclusive monopoly.?Abra
