Transcript ■ ■^■■■■■H Excerpts from President Eisenhower's Later Speech at Philadelphia I i The spirit of Geneva, if it is to provide a healthy atmosphere for the pursuit of peace, if it is to be genuine and not spurious, must inspire all to a correction of injustices, an observance of human rights and an end to subversion organized on a world-wide scale. Whether or not such a spiril as this will thrive through lhe combined intelligence eunl understanding of men. or will shrivel in the greed and ruthlessness of some, is for the future to tell. But one thing is certain. This spirit and the goals we seek could never bene been achieved by violence or when men and nations confronted each oilier wilh hearts filled with fear and hatred. At Geneva we strove to help establish this spiril. Geneva spells for America, not stagnation, then, bul opportunity—opportunity for our own people and for people everywhere to realize their just aspirations. Eagerness to avoid war—if we think no deeper than this single desire—can produce outright or implicit agreement that injustices and wrongs of the present shall be perpetuated in the future. We must nol participate in any such false agreemenl. Thereby, we would outrage our own conscience. In the eves of those who suffer injustice, we would become partners with llieir oppressors. In the judgment of history, we would have sold out the freedom of men for the pottage of a false peace. Moreover, we would assure future conflicl! The division of Germany cannot be supported hy any argument based on boundaries or language or racial origin. The domination of captive countries cannot longer be justified by any claim that ibis is needed for purposes of se- curity. An international political machine, operating within the borders of Sovereign nations for llieir political anil ideological subversion, cannot be explained away as a cultural movement. Very probably, the reason for these and other violations of the rights of men and of nations is a compound of suspicions and fear. Theit explains. It cannot excuse. In justice to others and to ourselves, we can never accept those wrongs as a part of the peace that we desire and seek. We must be firm but friendly. We must be tolerant but not complacent. We must be quick lo understand another's viewpoint, honestly assumed. But we musl never agree' to injustice for the weeik. fm tin- unfortunate, for lhe underprivileged, well knowing thai if wc accept destruction of the principle of justice for all. we cannot longer claim justice for ourselves as a matter of right. The peace we want—the product of understanding anel agreement and law among nations—is an enduring international environment, based on justice and security. It will reflect enlightened self-interest, ll »ill foster the concentration of human energy—individual and organized— -for the advancement of human standards in all the areas of mankind's material, intellectual and spiritual life. Can we achieve that sort of peace? I think we can. At times it may seem hopeless, far beyond human capacity to reach. Bul has any great accomplishment in history begun with assurance of its success? Our own republic is a case- in point. Through a long generation there was almost a unanimous world conviction that the United States of America was an artificial contrivance thai could not long endure. \nd the republic survived its most perilous years—the experimental years because of dedicated efforts by individuals, not because it had a built-in guarantee of success or a path free from obstacles. Our case for peace, based on jusl ice. is as sound as was John Marshall's for the Constitution and lhe Union. Anil il will be as successful—if we present it before the bar of world opinion with the same courage and dedicated conviction lhat be brought to his mission. In our communities we can, each according lo his capacity, promote com- piehension of what this republic must be—in strength, in understanding, in dedication lo principle—if it is to fulfill ils role of leadership for peace. In the' search for justice, we can make our system an ever more glorious ex- ample of em orderly government devoted lo ihe preservation of human freedom ami man's individual opportunities and responsibilities. No matter how vigorously we propose' and uphold our individual views in domestic problems, we can present alu eeenl a united front in all lhal concerns tin' freedom and security of the republic, its dedication to a just and prosperous peace. Above all. conscious of lhe lowering achievements manifest in the republic's history under the Constitution, assured that no human problem is beyond solu- lieen '.'i\e'n the' will, the' pcrscM'raiua- and the strength each of us can help arouse in \iiiirii:i ei renewed and flaming dedi- cation to justice and liberty, prosperity anil peace among men.
