Transcript The Wilson administration has just jammed through Congress the greatest military appropriations that were ever made by any nation in time of peace. Study the official figures in the table at the bottom of the next page. They represent the military appropriations made by the nations now at war for the fiscal year that ended June 30, 1914. Compare these figures with the American appropriations for next year. Bear in mind that our appropriations were made by gentlemen who declare they are steadfastly opposed to militarism. Bear in mind that these gentlemen—like most Americans —believe German militarism played a considerable part in bringing about the present war. Take note of the fact that when the present belligerents were pulling themselves together for war, none of them, during the last year of peace, made military appropriations that in size could compare with the Wilson appropriations. Consider the fact that Mr. Hughes and his party criticise the Wilson military appropriations only because they are not larger. Ask yourself what is the significance of the fact that our military appropriations have become so stupendous that, beside them, the German appropriations look small. If you value your life and the lives of the members of your family, do not shrink from these facts. It is better to think than to be shot. Europe is at war because ,in time of peace, it neglected to face facts and deal with them. Make up your mind to this: Militarism is a great evil or it is not. If it is not a great evil, we should go down upon our knees and beg the Kaiser's pardon for what we have said about him and his militarism. If we still regard militarism as a great evil, we should denounce it as much in the United States as we have denounced it in Germany. We should not tolerate here what we believe has brought disaster abroad. 48
