The Externalization of the Hierarchy - Section III - Forces behind the Evolutionary Process
The work of reconstruction will be the work of the intelligent men and women of goodwill, and theirs will be the task to restore new life and happiness to humanity, and it is for them I write. Please bear this in mind. I am not writing for technical experts and trained advisors to the government, but to those who have goodwill in their hearts to all men, and who, because of it, want to do their share in bringing tranquility and peace to the world - a peace based on surer values than in the past and upon sounder planning. In the last analysis, it is not peace for which the men of goodwill are working, but for the growth of the spirit of understanding and cooperation; this alone will be strong enough to break down 'racial barriers, heal the wounds of war, and build a new world structure adequate to the intelligent demands of the masses.

In the earlier pamphlets, I sought (along with many other thinking people) to indicate the steps which might be taken to avert the impending cataclysm. Among the most important upon which emphasis was laid was the growth of world goodwill, for goodwill is the active principle of peace. I sought also to stress international understanding, a future of shared planetary resources, and a recognition of [367] a general historically-proved guilt in relation to the war, plus those ideas which could - if developed - end the era of separativeness.

In spite of all the efforts of the men of goodwill, of all the peace organizations, and the enlightened work of the world thinkers, educators and leaders, two things happened which it had been hoped might be averted. The first was a definite and focused precipitation of the spirit of evil and of materialism through the medium of the Axis nations, using the aggression of Japan as the initial focal point and expressing itself later in full force through Germany. The second was the failure of the neutral nations, in the early stages of the war, to take the needed steps to ally themselves actively with the nations fighting totalitarianism, and their inability to realize the full horror of what lay ahead for mankind. The selfishness of humanity was even more deep seated than was grasped, and the United Nations came into cooperative activity only after two years of war and the planned rape of many of the neutral nations. The blindness of the neutral nations definitely upset the calculations of farsighted workers for world good and seriously delayed the ending of the war.

The critical point is now passed, and the humanitarian grasp of the issues involved, and the unity existing among the Allied Nations, guarantee the inevitable defeat of the Axis Powers. Other factors also ensure the ultimate victory of the forces of right and the freedom of the world. There is not time to enlarge upon them, but they can be listed and people can then see how assuredly they guarantee the triumph of the free peoples of the world. These factors are:

  1. The will-to-victory is steadily growing. Appeasement, pacifism and uncertainty are as steadily dying out.
  2. The plight of humanity everywhere, as the result of Axis aggression, is definitely steadying public opinion and evoking an unalterable determination to end the evil initiated and carried forward by Germany and Japan, aided somewhat unwillingly by Italy. [368]
  3. The resources of the United Nations are vast and are now in process of mobilization. Their massed use and their manufacturing potential are practically inexhaustible and are rapidly being organized. The man power and the resources of Germany and of her allies have reached their peak, bringing enormous present potency, but a steady decline is indicated for the future.
  4. The issues in this war are being increasingly clearly realized; even the ignorant and the prejudiced recognize today that these issues can be grouped under three major positions, and this enables them to make a personal choice as to loyalties.
    1. The democratic position, with its emphasis upon the Four Freedoms and the Atlantic Charter, ensuring right human relations and the ending of aggression.
    2. The totalitarian position, with its emphasis upon world dictatorship, the slavery of the many conquered nations, its anti-racial bias and its blatant cruelty and terrorism.
    3. The appeasement and the pacifist attitudes - idealistic and impractical and finding their focus today in the attitude of Gandhi. He brings into clear perspective the uncompromising, fanatical attitude which is non-realistic and which will willingly sacrifice lives, nations and the future of humanity in order to attain its object. If Gandhi were to succeed in his objective now, it would precipitate civil war in India, sacrifice all immediate hope of freedom for that country, permit the Japanese to realize an easy conquest of India, bring about a slaughtering of countless thousands, and permit Germany to join hands with Japan across Asia, with the appalling probability of a totalitarian victory.

These three points of view are today being clearly realized by men everywhere, and their decisions as to loyalties and adherence are clarified.

  1. The spirit of freedom is triumphing in every land (even in the conquered countries, much to the bewilderment of [369] Germany), and the beauty of the human spirit is emerging everywhere, both in the conquered lands and in the nations fighting, with their backs to the wall, for human liberty.
  2. An intense interest in after-war conditions is evidenced by the utterances of leaders, politicians, lecturers and the spiritually minded men everywhere; this is testified to by the articles, pamphlets, books, speeches and plans dealing with the new world order. The forces of rehabilitation and of goodwill are rapidly mobilizing; they constitute a great army within all nations, and they are an invisible army, but one which is as yet inchoate, uncertain as to method and process, though clear as to goals and principles.
