Abstract

During 1949, statesmen and public opinion in the great western democracies became dimly aware of the growing failure of their whole post-war world policy. In essence, and under many layers of confusion, contradiction, camouflage, humbug, and hypocrisy, it is the same old policy of "preservation of society on existing lines and resistance to Communistic propaganda" that was practised after the first world war and so painfully and unnecessarily lost the peace.
