Second Class Mafl Matter at the

Port Morgan (Colorado) Times
In these times of agitation t
tween groups on industrial matters
it can be said that renewed stimula
tion of that spirit of initiative and
self-reliance?both individual - and
corporate?is vital to America to
morrow on two counts: Pint, tie
cause popular self-government itself
cannot long exist without an econo
mically independent country; second,
because the rising standard of living
that we seek to attain depends on
increased production, and we cannot
get increased "production in the ab
sence of individual and corporate in
itiative and efficiency, backed up fay
the united effort of all our economic
In respect to the first point, name
ly, the vital importance of maintain
ing an economically independent citi
zenry: Obviously, the preservation of
a representative democracy hinges
directly mi the willingness of the
people to decide public questions on
the basis of the general national wel
fare?not on narrow considerations
of individual or group selfishness.
If citizens are not themselves eco
nomically independent but are the
wards of the state, how can they a
void dealing with public questions on
the basis of self-interest. Further
more, without a financially independ-1
ent citizenry, how can we hope to
maintain onr two-party political sys
tem ? The party in power is in posi
tion to use public funds for political
propaganda. Financial support for
the opposition can come only from
private citizens, and without intelli
gent opposition our republican sys
tem of government is self-defeating.
Obviously, also, private business
cannot exist without constant accre
tions of new capital. If private citi
zens are not in position to furnish it,
the state must supply it and when
government becomes the ^ primary
source of capital funds, national so
cialism automatically displaces rep
resentative democracy. The church
and our private educational and phi
lanthropic institutions would be lost
without the support that individual
citizens can furnish them.
Thus, a self-reliant, economically
