Transcript 48 Russia's Gift to the World they were quite out of touch with the Russian people, both the agricultural peasant and the industrial working man. Love is the most potent spring of action, and the reformers did not arouse the love of the people by their own love for the people. It must be clear from the facts which have been here summarised that talk such as may sometimes be heard even in England, of " the barbarous East at the gates of Europe " and the danger of an " avalanche of multitudinous savagery," is either wilful falsehood or ignorance so gross as to be equally dangerous. Ignorance is mischievous as well as foolish. Falsehood is a deeper evil than absence of political freedom. The English nation by instinct, tradition, and moral sense loves freedom ; but it also desires knowledge and loves truth. The last century has witnessed more than one national regeneration. The regeneration of Germany, which began little more than a century ago, bore fruit in the German Empire, in the achievements of Germany in science, thought, and literature, and in the consciousness throughout all the German people of a high position and of a great future. The regeneration of Italy, slowly wrought out through crushing difficulties and multiplied failures by the genius of men like Cavour, Mazzini, Garibaldi, supported by a spirit working among the whole Italian nation, has restored Italy to the place which for many centuries she had lost, and made her now one of the great civilised nations of the world. The regeneration of France under the third Republic may be judged not only from the growth among the French people of science, of industry, and of social reform, but still more from the steady and resolved patriotism with which they are facing the present crisis. The regeneration of Russia is the last and greatest of all. Russia started later in the race, but she is now in the full movement of a common progress. She is taking our gifts, and giving her own.
