Reduced to its simplest terms the
problem of neutrality is this: How
much are we going to insist upon our
right to do in time of war the things
we have a right to do in time of
peace? In actual practice, because
we are separated from Europe by an
ocean and must ship our goods by
sea, the problem of neutrality in a
European war is bound to take this
form: Shall we allow the belligerent
with the stronger navy to* regulate
American trade in the war zone, or
has American trade certain "neutral
rights” which we are prepared to de.
fend even if it means going to war
with the stronger power?
Consider, for example, the impend
ing war between Italy and Ethiopia.
Italy commands the seas and can,
therefore, stop any shipments of
goods to Ethiopia. If we acquiesce,
we say in effect that whoever has
the stronger navy may obtain Amer.
ican supplies. If we do not acquiesce,
we would have to be prepared in the
last analysis to go to war to break
the Italian sea power. Now, suppose
that Great Britain should go to war
with Italy. Since Britain has the
stronger navy, Britain would as.
sume the right to say what may be
shipped to Italy. Having acquiesced
in Italy’s blockade of Ethopia, would
we than acquiesce in Britain’s
blockade of Italy? Or would we risk
a war with Great Britain in order
to preserve the right to trade with
This is very complicated but the
problem, though not the solution, be
comes clear if we keep it firmly in
mind that the choice is between (1)
letting the stronger naval power reg
ulate maritime trade and (2) chal.
lenging the stronger naval power in
order to enforce "neutral rights.”
This is an unpleasant dilemma. In a
little and localized war, such as a
war between Italy and Ethopia, it
would, however, present no very ser-
ious difficulties. There is no Ethio.
pian navyt No American shipment
will be able to reach Ethiopia directly
and Ethiopia will be unable to stop
any American shipment to Italy. But
in the large war that may develop
out of this war, the difficulties would
be formidable. Britain has no such
absolute naval superiority over Italy
as Italy has over Ethiopia. There,
fore, Italy could attack trade with
Britain while Britain was attempting
to blockade Italy. This was precisely
what happened in the World War
when the Germans used their sub
Under such circumstances it is hard
to avoid being drawn into the quar.
rel. As long as one side is absolute
master of the seas, it is easy to stay
out of war by letting that side regu.
late trade. A one-sided neutral trade
can continue under the protection
of the stronger naval power. But if
neither belligerent is absolute master,
if control of the seas is in dispute,
neutral trade has to run through the
zone of fire. Then there is violence,
lives are lost, and the situation be.
A neutral policy which is not pre.
pared to deal with the situation is
an unrealistic policy. It meets the
easy cases and evades the hard and
For a nation Peking to avoid any
kind of diplomatic entanglement,
there would seem to be only one log
ically consistent way to deal with
this situation. It would be to take
the position that all trade wtth bel.
ligerents is a private risk, in other
words that the flag does not protect
trade with nations at war. This is
ja revolutionary principle in the Unil_
I ed States, though it is In fact the
j principle by which the Scandinavian
I countries. Holland, and Switzerland
‘ maintain their neutrality. They sim-
jply do not attempt, except by words,
I to defend "neutral rights.” It i.s the
I only neutral policy which is reason.
' ably certain to keep a nation out
'of war under almost all conditions.
j But even this policy is not a sim_
pie one for a country like the Unit-
I ed States. For the question will in-
evitably arise as to whether we
should protect trade between AmerL
, ca and some other neutral as against
the claim of a belligerent that the
j goods are going to be reshipped to
, his enemy. Thus if we renounce the
I "neutral rights” to trade with Ethio
pia, what would we do about our
right to trade with Egypt when Italy

^ stopped it on the ground that the
goods were going to Ethiopia? The
only complete solution of this prob
lem would be to renounce the de
fense of neutral trade rights in the
whole European and African world.
j A policy of this sort would never
be popular. It would mean the de.
struction or the disorganization not
merely of war trade, but of perfectly
normal trade. The worst aspect of it
I is, however, that a great power
which so completely renounced its
rights would be regarded, the world
being what it is, as so utterly pa
cific that any one could safely in
jure it or dishonor it. Some one
j would sooner or later carry insult too
I far, and then suddenly the nation
I would throw off its pacifism and
strike out violently to avenge its
honor and restore its pride.
I Yet as long as our supreme pur
pose is to stay out of wars rather
than to prevent them, it is on these
I lines that a policy will have to be
framed. The practical question is:
How much of the system of neutral
rights has to be renounced in order
to avoid trouble? Congress seems to
, think that if we give up shipping
munitions and stay off the ships of
belligerents, that is all we shall have
to renounce. But it would soon be
plain In the event of an important
war that no line can be drawn be
tween munitions and raw materials
or food, and that the most danger
ous entanglement has not been avoid,
ed by a mere munitions embargo.
A policy of withholding protection
from trade with belligerents would
work out curiously in Europe. It
would enable the League powers, that
is Britain and France, to use the
League’s machinery without inter,
ference by the United States. It
would be a left-handed way of co
operating with them, by removing
the obligation to Interfere with
them. They are the stronger naval
powers. If they decided to block
ade an aggressor, the fact that we
were not enforcing neutral rights
would enable them to obtain Amer
ican supplies and to withhold them
from the "outlaw” nation.
It may be, therefore, that those
who wish to preserve the neutrality
by avoiding entanglements and those
who wish to preserve it by encourag
ing the League to prevent war could
find common ground in the principle
that America would not fight to
protect its trade with nations that
are at war. In European wars, at
least, such a policy would probably
tend to support the League powers
with a minimum of entanglements
for this country. How it would work
in Asia or in South American might
be a very different matter.
