There is real cause for concern in the fact that the World Revolution will sweep all before it. Were the prospect less awesome, the day of the Great Event could be faced with courage, for surely it would see many remarkable things.
How pleasant it would be to view Messrs. Hitler, Long Coughlin et al, stewing in their own juice, swallowing their own words (though the looks on their faces as they did so would be horrible). The demise of the Watch and Ward Society, and the refusal of all intelligent Bostonians to the censorship of acknowledged literature and art--what a delightful fantasy! One's Imagination conjures up any number of idyllic pictures, ranging from the elimination of the profit motive and the brother hood of man, to devices that will render Boston winters things of the past.
But of all the wonders to fall on this Day of Days, surely the most wonderful will be the realization on the part of the American people that all their problems cannot be solved by legislation, and that to make a man swear allegiance to a flag, whether or no it be that of his birth, is tantamount in folly to betting on Oxford in the Oxford-Cambridge crew race. University and school teachers, whenever they gather in secret, must drink toasts to Der Tag that is dear to their hearts--when the American Legion will have been deafened by the noise of its bands and shouting, and the Daughters of the American Revolution burned by the fire of their own patriotism.
