War and Rational Politics free pdf Excerpt from War and Rational Politics A Word of explanation may obviate criticism of these pages being founded upon any misapprehension. Those of us who have for years deplored the wastefulness of war, and the absence from any place in the relations between separate States of even that amount of true morality which obtains among the classes of any one State, have been called "Little Englanders," "Blue-Water School," "Pro-Boers," etc. When one party to a dispute invents a "popular tag" for his opponent - generally in the hope of implying some supposed moral delinquency - it is a proof of either his bankruptcy in argument or deficiency in brains. If the childish infatuation for "swagger" be eliminated, and adult "reason" be given a chance, "war" stands out as a simple lunacy. A great many of those who consider that the "glory of the British Empire" is safe only so long as they have the selection of the items on the programme, have had the time of their lives since the present war broke out. With irresponsible bombast they have propounded the conundrum: "Where would we have been now except for what you call our expensive navy?" I do not know any "Peace" advocate who desired that Britain should not have a strong navy, so long as the Prussian military lunatics were unrestrained. But every "Peace" man considered that there would have been more hopefulness of curing these lunatics either by healthier surroundings or by a universal combination for restraint than in our so-called "diplomacy" of goading the "lunatics" to increasing frenzy. This "Prussian lunacy" began in 1862, when the doctrine of "swelled head" was invented by Bismarck. It has gone on increasing, its danger being recognized by all the other Powers, who have allowed petty jealousies to prevent such combination of several of them as could have stamped out the disease at comparatively slight cost. Instead of this sane arrangement, we have seen the European Powers, while pharisaically lamenting every new Prussian raving, each imitate every antic and insane development.
