PACTS FORUM NEWS, August, m:,:. Thel elli' meiin —United Press Photo statements in this United Nations Charter which appeal to the warm-heartedness and openhanded generosity which dues indeed characterize Americans. There em- many slate- ments in here aboul how everybody ought lo have peace, plenty, and prosperity. .And. of course, every sensible American would like' in feel Ilieil every person on earth could achieve these wonderful end-, lint when you gel behind lhe niei' sentiments and examine lhe philosophy of governmenl written into ibis charier of the I nited Nations, vein will find lhat ii is taken entirel) frnm ihe Constitution of the Soviel Union. The basic American philosophy of a'inci nniiiil i- nut relleclcd eil any poinl or in em\ line eif the United Nations (Charter. The' philosophy of government written into the American Constitution i- that people derive their rights frnm God that government therefore musl leave them alone anil lake none of their rights away from them, sn thai they will be free eis individuals in pursue for themselves, under God, their own ideals. The philosophy nf government written into ihe Constitution of the Sn\ iel I nion ami into lhe Charter nl lhe I nited Nations rejects the idea of divine power in human affairs and implies lhat eill rights einel privileges come frnm government.

The Vmerican notions eel individualism; of limited, negative government; and of the divine and inalienable rights of human beings eire never even suggested in llie ('harliT nf lhe I nited Nalions. In fail, lhe I N Charter does not even pretend lo stand for freedom. ll stands for peace and plenty, guaranteed bv government; and il sacrifices freedom in these materialistic goals which Socialists eiml Communists believe lhal governmenl 15111 attain.
