Transcript I M i Senator Humphrey Senator Jenner Senator Sparkman Represi No other issue facing the American people today is more important to tlie preservation of woW peaee or has greater effeel on domestic prosperity and Individual freedom and initiative than tV foreign poliey adopted by our government. There are, of course, opposing views concerning o' present foreign policy. Presented here are divergent statements on this subject made by four oi*' standing l.\ S. (Congressmen: Senator Hubert H. Humphrey (D) of Minnesota, Senator William * Jenner (R) of Indiana, Senator John J. Sparkman (1)) of Alabama, and Representative Alvin*' O'Konski (R) of Wisconsin* U. S. FOREIGN POLICY Hi The Strength and Weaknesses of Our Foreign Policy Speech by Hon. Hubert 11. Humphrey, Ts. Senator from Minnesota, before Colgate University's Seventh Annual Foreign Policy Conference, July 11, 1955. KEVER were truer words written or ,1 spoken than lhe motto of Colgate University's seventh annual foreign policy conference, "Foreign Policy Is Everybody's Business." Our very survival, our hope of ei better fulure. the continuance or defeat of the principles of freedom and justice are intimately related to our foreign policy. . . . The greatest challenge of our time is I,, recognize the kind of world in which we live, and lo profit and learn from the lessons of history—a world in revolutionary change. We here in America have learned that Page 24 peoples of different backgrounds, races, national origins, and creeds can live together, work together, and build together. This achievement was made possible by a belief in and dedication to the universally accepted principles of a free society—the dignity of man. freedom of conscience, and a recognition of fraternity and brotherhood. Our Declaration of Independence, our Constitution, the principles of the French Revolution and the Magna Cbarta are the historical testimonials to the practical adaptation of these democratic ideals and principles. If it is possible to build a great nation whose destiny and prog- ress is guided by these ideals, it should give us faith and hope thai we are capable of doing our part in building a world order thai will not sacrifice these principles and the institutions of freedom and justice. Our history, our heritage and experience in self-government, yes, our own revolution, arc in fact the source- of our strength. Our foreign police is weakened and limited only insofar as we forget or fail to apply the yardstick of our democratic experience to the complex and intricate problems of the world in which we live. The enhancement of freedom is not made possible by aping the enemies of freedom. Democracy and free institutions are not made more secure or advanced by utilizing totalitarian techniques. To be strong we musl be true to ourselves. Now having philosophized with you for a few moments, let me get down to the particulars. In the main, I am proud of what our country has done in the field of international relations. Fortunately, we have learned that national independence can be sustained and made meaningful only by a recognition of internalional Interdependence. It took us two world wars and a worldwide depression to have this fact driven home. ll is to our credit, however, thai we have learned our lesson and to our sorrow that we have had to pay so dearly for this belated knowledge, Today iln- climate of public opinion in America FACTS FORUM NEWS, October, 1955 is res llu lb, pn lill III ti, lee ae tic be, oil stl to lube l-il 111 ,a we of I" Ol
