Safeguarding America free pdf Excerpt from Safeguarding America: Speech of Hon. Warren G. Harding of Ohio in the Senate of the United States, September 11, 1919 However, if disagreement with the Executive, now that the war is won, is to invite the charge of narrow partisanship, I welcome it and am content to let it go at that. It was the truth, last year, two years ago, three and four years ago, the people of this country were heedlessly and overwhelmingly for a league of nations, or a society of nations, or a world court, or some international association which should develop a fraternity of action among civilized peoples and save humanity not only from the sorrows and sufferings like those which came with the war now ended, but from the involvements of which we are not yet emerged. Many leaders of the party represented on this side of the Chamber were conspicuous in its advocacy, and thousands less notable joined the chorus. Among the latter I joined In writing a favoring declaration in the platform of the Republican Party in Ohio, which I think fairly voiced the aspirations of the people of that State. In the popular thought was the wish to abolish war and promote peace and make justice supreme, and it was believed that the world, war wearied and drenched with the blood of millions of devoted nationalists, would be ready for the committal. Our people were thinking of the thing desired, and never pondered the method or the cost of its making. Nobody stopped to think of the involvements then. We are only learning them now. It would have been well to have counseled with one another before the covenant was fashioned. The people voted such a preference most emphatically last November. Most people thought there would be counseling, and it ought to have been done. When the armistice brought humanity's greatest sigh of relief since fellowship engirdled the earth, it was the common thought that sympathy would inspire and justice would impel and safely would demand some created agency of the conscience of the world that should contribute to the furtherance of peace and maintained tranquillity. But the immediate task was the settlement of the war suspended by the armistice. The manifest yearning was for recovery from madness and destruction and waste and disorder, and the instincts of self-preservation called for speedy restoration. No one doubted that the measureless cost and unspeakable suffering would awaken the consciences of nations to take stock of their relationships and readjust them to guard against recurrent horrors. But the pressing call was for peace, peace among the belligerent powers, peace for convalescence, peace for deliberation, peace for that understanding which is the first essential in undertaking a worldwide covenant which mankind had never effected heretofore. No one can doubt the advantageous position of this Republic when the armistice was signed. We had proven our unselfishness. We alone had not won the war, but our entrance into the conflict in April, 1917, saved the waning morale of allied nations which bore the brunt of German attack, and our first expeditionary forces in the summer of 1917 revived the drooping spirits of the fighting forces of France and England, and in 1918 the sons of this Republic turned the sweeping tide of battle backward.
