You and Your Nation's Affair's Isolation Is an Illusion By ERNEST MINOR PATTERSON President, American Academy oj Political and Social Scienra Just before the World War, an Ens- bsh writer, Norman Aneell wrote a volume entitled "The World's IIlu- iion " In it he argued that i* doca not pay a country to so to war He was misinterpreted and criticized and tor years was very unpopular Now he Is Sir Norman Angell and is a member ot the House of Commons In the United Statcsduring the past lew years, public opinion has been slrong'y swayed by another illusion which is now weakening It is tho idea that the United States can remain aloof from acute controversies that arc convulsing other pirts of tho world Our Neutrality Act was an expression of this view and it seemed to many that its passage had protected us from becoming imohcd In another world war let cn-Iy in October President Roosevc't delivered an address In Ci:=co t'-st K' the wo-ld tall inn srd on the re* I day our Department of S ate majo a l^rmii statement con- d" -" ng Japan for its attack upon C a Â· r t uPl happen next no one can . _- ~**ab'v no t c% C i the Prcsiucnt or ' S - - v ol S -i - Tue o"!y Â«Â· ' t! -it s a-t's out is t lat In spite of our Ncu "a jt Act we ire be-Jin Ins ir\ohcd Rccert developments In CMna. the bombing and boarding of an American gunboat arc proof of this statement, if proof were needed One en*v reaction Is to condemn President Roose\ clt Certainly a serious question is raised. Congress, representing the prop's of the United States and apparently reflecting public opinion at the time passed a law directing the President to take certain steps whenever he 'shall find that there exists a state of war between, or amons, tw o or more foreign states." No one denies thÂ« there is now a war between Japn and China, but the President, up to the time of this writing, hr,s refrained from n declaration This I at least superficially a definite failure by him to put into effect the M ill of the people as expressed through Congress Many who opposed the Neutrality Act as unwise jnd futile are very properly troubled. Thn question is not whether one agrcci with the general views ol the Prcsi dent or with those of Congress. It ii whether tho Executive is or is not to carry out an act passed by the legislative branch of the government. But the President's failure to do to may be viewed from another anglo I it possible, under modern condition i for the United States to isolate itself even partially from conflicts between other countries it these countries art large and important' Direct American interests in China, both of tradÂ« and Investment, aro undoubtedly small as compared with tho cost of becoming involved in a war to pro* lect them. It teems ciear that Norman AngcII was right about the "illusion' that war pays. Thero is another and more far- reaching aspect Modern life in all ol its ramifications is completely dependent upon tho keeping oÂ£ promises. Unless promises are respected and carried out business transaction-, will dwindle, with all of the economic distress that Is sure to follow Unless trade agreements and pledges to re Â·jpcct territorial integrity may bo relied upon, the consequences will ba disas rous. In the past agreements have been Ignored and at times defied Even our own country has a record about wh'ch we cannot boas! for ex- amp 1 " in conrec*lon with the Panama Ca^nl To admit past mistaken is not to cor one f-c-n a-d the fact that thej were committed dees not relieve us from the necessity for calling a halt for the future In the present crisis there Is no question but that promises ha^c been broken. The issue is whether or not It is possible now to apply pressures that will protect thÂ« future Many cynic-; believe that mere expressions of disapproval will accomplish nothing Perhaps they are right, but the attempt should be made Many insist that economic pressures will be ineffective, arguing that they were tried against Italy and failed. It must be conceded ho\\ ever, that they were not applied fullv and also that Japan is in an even more vulnerable position In the confusion one thing stands out clearly Isolation for the United States is an illusion We cannot keep entirely aloof.
