Transcript ADD PATRIOTISM TO ADS f>0111iC»1 Riddle of E1IIS t«M II (Continued from Page 23) Loyally is not enough! Il musl In- accompanied with a pride in loyally branding one as a Patriot. For his Patriotism, the MISTAKEN will attempt In discredit him. This may prove to be shaky ground for the MISTAKEN, identifying them to an alerted people for what they are and disclosing the tenor and tone of their plot. The Patriot will be termed "anti-this" hi "emli-thal." or ridiculed as old-fashioned. However, be should succeed, for today he is armed with the most natural force or instinct in human history— self-preservation. The true friends of the Opportunity System ill America can save ii by acting together, by appreciating, encouraging and understanding each other. Wilh food understanding, they men acl collectively without formal organization. If this can be done, the advantage is that there will be onl) Patriotic individuals lo be smeared ea* responsible for his own action—and this can defeat the MISTAKEN's deadrj smear. Their wa) of life will not lie saved for them In ils enemies nor ley people unaware or indifferent to ihe danger. The) musl learn the score for those who know mil of the battle cannot win il. They need to keep in mind that the Soe-ialisl who is mistaken is little different from the Communisl and is equally destructive to Liberty. We mav safely proceed on the theory lhat our nation is so mighty in its industrial potential and its people see ingenious that in- can In- destroyed only through betrayal. Since this is true, we- musl he able lo detect treason, near- treason, and tolerance of treason. In the MISTAKEN's plan the destruction of our national ideals is a key step. Side- Ireiikintr Constitutional Governmenl and undermining Patriotism is a part of this sabotage. •Mil) PATRIOTISM TO ADS." pro- llleele-.l with zeal, rem o\ el u helm the MISTAKEN. BEYOND CONSPIRACY Much is said about the Communisl conspiracy. I nfortunately for 11-. the MISTAKEN understand each other so thoroughly that they can depend on each other to work in concert and need sel- ilniii meet in dark conspiracy. So smooth is their teamwork that two or three. working smoothly, are often seen to rise up and capture a small meeting by a few timely questions, comments, and motions, all made in apparent good faith. Ea* furnishes the impetus for lhe other and soon the hall is rolling their way. Those learning In keep score may study the effect of announcements by stations aml sponsors disclaiming thc "view-- and opinions expressed" in connection wilh (Continued on Page _'"> I Pace 24 Test For ?State of the Nation' -Wide World Pholo Einstein Brooklyn Police Lieutenant Edward Shea has succeeded where some of America's an- reporters have failed — in gelling Professor Allien Einstein s theory, not of relativity, but of politics. In relating his story via Facts Forum's STATE OF THE N VTIOIN program, l.t. Shea lohl how the idea to write to Prof. I.iiisiciu came to him during a dinner part) with friends. "Since nobody present seemed to be familiar with what liis political philosophy really was. I offered to write and find onl." explained 1.1. Shea. His efforts drew the following letter I nun Prof. Einstein : 111.\u Sue: Thank you foi vein letter „f Novembei 22. 1 good got eminent. resp. constitution, U, in my opinion, one which gives (lie ,iti- zrn thai in mi in u in mu,,unt nf liberty ami political rights ns is desirable in his men interests. lln ihe other hand, the .stale tuts to pro- vide fur the litizens pels,,mil security and n certain amount of economic security. This situation necessitates n compromise between those two requirements which has to /„■ found according to circumstances. Yours i eiy sincerely, e Signed ' \. El x-i el y SOCIETY'S OLD RIDDLE In commenting on the second sentence eef llr. Einstein s letter, another program guest, George Hamilton Combs, said. "It restates lln- eelel riddle of our organized society: To what extent ma) a citizen he given liberty or exercise liberty in such a way that it will mil violate lhe greatei or overweening good of socicl\ as a whole? "Thai particular phrase, 'as is desir able in his own interests,' seems to me lo he a somewhat equivocal phrase, Mr. Combs continued. "Il could he interpreted in two ways. Il could mean that the' stale- could he the judge of lhat quantum of power or liberty given to him with which I am not theoretically >nl luii whii-h is probably neces- -ai \ as a pragmatic matter. Or it could mean that the degree of liberty given him should he- consistent wilh his own best inter,-sis eis a member of society, as a member of the community wilh the interacting responsibilities of such communal membership." lb- went on to say thai Professor Einstein's political philosophy comes rinse' le, paralleling his own. "I'm strong- \ ly inclined to the belief thai this posat lhe great problem of our limes. How do we- preserve the largest area of personal I liberty consistent with our security and | with the maintenance of organized SO" ciety? He has put it perhaps inversely- hut if I may slate it. it's this: How do we- manage to safeguard the greatest possible measure of individual freedom within lhe context of a society which musl enjoy certain protection and afforo certain security?" "SHEER POLITICAL INCOHERENCE" Another program guest. William Buckley, Jr., stated, ''I think that tin' letter received by l.t. Shea is an excel lent example of sheer political ini-nli''1' en,-,-. Put it this way: I think thai tbj average professor of political science i" any college in the United Slates would have looked at. say. an examination paper thai contained ihis description A lhe role of governmenl and thc role 4 free man in a society and have marked 'j f..' That is lo say. he would have fail1''' il simply on lhe grounds lhal the persOJ who offered such a statement simpb '" not al home even wilh lhe vo,alalia'1 of government on the basis of which u' have to try lo formulate some opini"" aboul government. "I would say that this leads us '" something very important anil highlj relevant and liial is lhat unfortunate') lhe American people and. in fact, peop" throughout the world have tended "j identif) scientific skill with politic" -kill with a result that has been <li-'"' Irons In terms of our society. I'nfoi'l"" alely. I think it happens l,, ]„■ hue lha scientists as a whole seem to he not p3'' ticularly competent political ihinkei* This. I think, is illustrated von well ''' the record eel Einstein himself. "Here is a man." Mr. Buckley eiddc^ "who was given refuge in ibis conn"'- from Nazi i\ ranny. lb- no sooner cafr to ihis country than he showed his tO1' for American governmental processes. "He has belonged to thirty ConH"1'' nisi fronts in this country. He "*' linked the Socialist ticket. In fact- K has shown himself not only ungrate'", to the country thai gene him some ki". of refuge, but he has shown hiffl*e. rather to be a \ igorous critic of the b"5' institutions of lhal country. .Now >° thai reason I think thai il is nolhj.n* short of silly to lake anything lhat b"T stein -ens politically, seriously."
