'When I Was Young' s On his letuni home from the UN session in New York, Field Marshal Sibils* South Africa's venerable prime ministerv made a couple of speeches defending his country's racial policies ahd decrying the idea of racial and religious equality. : In one of these speeches Marshal ts exclaimed, "At the United Nations I heard nothing but tlu-- word ' equality.' Equality! I have been a student of history, politics and philosophy, but this is a new word to me. When 1 was yourfjr, we lea/ned an'd spoke of fair play aftd justice, not equality." That is a famalini' line of reasoning, which always has baffled us, alons wjth a great many others. It is a line of reasoning ^t once bopstfu!. and upol- ogetic, and usually illogical. Vot how often have .we not heard—OY used such words as these to defend a position ot terminate a discussion! "When I was a lioy (or girl) I was always taught to believe so ajsd so."' , The prime virtue always ^eeins to be that the speaker was taught to believe so and so "when he was Vo'unjr.'' A charming world, the labor of scholars' and scientists anjl a consequent ad- vancemetft of knowledge, even the intellectual growth of the speaker seom to count for nothing. The fact that a person has learned something at his mother's knee'or "hi the primary grades of a country school lends a potency and almost a smictity • *o the information i n question The possibility that this information might fce inadequate or even false M beside the point. ' « Thus any assortment of antiquated ' ^deas on ethics,, morals or what you.wiH can fre fl uently be defended by this maneuver. Logjc may have the do- f f der on ^e ropes. Present circumstances may render his position hopeless. But at the last minute ho CM', al ways assume a look of .superiority a ,u' announce in prqperly reverential tones, Well, all that may be so. But. when I young I was always t sll g> lt lo , : ' liey.e. . . ." • Even so learned a man as Prime Minister Smuts is a victim of this ancestor-worship and petrified consistency of thought. Nor js he alono jimon^ the UN tlelegates in his affliction. Such thinking, conscious or unconscious, is one of the great impediments to the achievenient of a stable and trustworthy peace. Too many of the men now entrusted with the world's fate seem to havo been taught to believe when they were young that: They were superior citizens of a superior nation: All foreigners svcre a litllc peculiar and more than a little siwjirct; "My country, right or wron« f ," was the ideal altitude, in intcnialionsil relations ; Certain races and religions wore infer/or by nature, and it was- right and proper to hate them and debase them. World peace i s not going 1 0 thrive on a diet of whal Marshal Smuts -uul other oldsters learned and spoke of "'hen they w er e young.
