Yet Mr. Flynn contended, and today contends, that ibis is the device which had much to do with wrecking Europe. And he is perfectly rigbl when he points oul that many of those who settled America were people who lied the despotic conscriptive systems of Europe. Other efforts by Mr. Flynn bene included The Truth About Pearl Harbor, a pamphlcl published in 1944 and roundly denounced al the lime-. This early pamphlet, written before the congressional investigation, is an interesting historical document now sce-n to be very mild in view of later revelations. Hut il was one of the earliest exploratory efforts on this subject. Another importanl book by John T. Flynn is bis II hile Vmi Slept Our Tragedy in Asia and Who Made ll. published iii 1951. The simple fact is. Mr. Flynn's I k- sland the test of time remarkably well. The "hindsight" cliche jusl doesn't lit him well. Tins seems to be ei good standpoint from which to approach his new book. His thesis is sucb a strong one that many people might be inclined lo dismiss it as an exaggeration. It seems that he realizes ihis possibility, for Ihis book is not bis ii-iial concise and highly condensed style, li is very repetitive, as if the author is living to pound home bis few seilicnl points from every possible angle. As he points out, a very considerable portion of today's voters never knew, during llieir adult years, any type nf American governmenl other lhan that instituted by the New Deed. In short, Mr. Flynn seems lee [eel that lhe American Republic i- nol only declined bui eil-n either unknown to or forgotten by ei great number of people. He may In- rigbl. Thai he sounded the tocsin aright in 1929 and subsequent years is not conducive to a bland dismissal of bis presenl warnings. Certainly. Mr. Flynn could have presented bis thesis in The Ilecline ol the American Republic easily in half the number of pages he used, but perhaps the profuse repetition is a good tbin_ The book should be ei particularly good one for young people- in the schools as a sort of companion piece to the collectivisl approach of so menu' text! ks. It does give .nn educationists a golden opportunity to buttress the concept of presenting both siele-. Mr. Flynn's basic theme is bis refrain from The Rood Ahead namely, that we are headed, sometimes slowly, but surely, down the road that leads to socialism. Whether it is the Marxian form or the non-Marxian form similar to that which llourished in many European countries—notably Germany and Italy Mr. Flynn does not clearly specify.
