WAR AND COMMERCIALISM
War, in the words of a noted
American Statesman, is Hell, but
there are some tilings that are
even worse than war, and that is
a degenerated and prostituted
society buried in the wanton
pursuit of greedy Commercial-
ism. Commercialism has been
tin? undermining principle that
has tripped the deadiall ol every
great nation which has been lur-
ed into its deadly trap.
The Phoenicians wore once a
great maritino and commercial
people. They served but one god
and that was theavaricous god of
commerce. National honor was
an unknown quanity and they
eared not who their rulers were,
so they were allowed to follow
tne peaceful pursuits ol Mam-
mon. Clod wrecked vengenco on
the principle cities ol this once
commercial nation whose ships
plied the seven seas. Tyre and
Sidon were made the place for
owls and hats to live and not the
centers for the worlds’ com-
Carthage the illustrious daugh-
ter of the Phoenicians gained
great prominence as the master
of the world’s commerce. Hut
before Carthage gained this cov-
eted place among the nations of
the world she was a nation of
noted warriors and proud armies,
but after years of world mastery
as a conqueror she became in-
slaved to the god of commerce
and national honor and pat-
riotism was an article to be ex
(‘hanged for gold, and Hannabal
the greatest warior of all history
was not able to raise enough
patroitism to meet the the le-
gions of Imperial Rome. “Car-
thago Delenda Est’’ was the d<
eree sent out and finally culmi-
nated in the destruction of the
proudest commercial nation that
the world has ever known, in the
end of the third Punic War.
Rome’s final triumph lay in
the fact that she was a strong
centralized nation with a govern-
ment that had the power of hold-
ing her Empire together where,
on the other hand Carthage was
a nation who had possessions :n
every part of the then known
world. They had become so en
grossed in the pursuits of Com-
mercialism until they had forgot-
ten love of country or the hardy
hood of the soldier that kept the
national patriotism burning on
the alter of the country. The
very thing that distinguished
Carthago as a Great Nation and
Mistress of the Seas was her un-
doing viz Commerce.
The papers and journals of to-
day are loaded down with arti
cles condetning war as the scour-
age of the race, the arch enemy
of civilization and the destruction
of the better elements of man.
Hut we hold and believe that
what has clarified man and has
been an aid and blessing to civili-
zation. We beleive as the fire
makes a brick of mud, war will
solidate the* moral involved in a
solid trutli that will bless the
world. We will mention for ex-
amples the wars of this country.
The revolution was fought for a
principle by the Colonies that
was the very instrument in
moulding the Colonies of Ameri-
ca into a common cause and thus
the American Republic. The
war of 1812 was a war fully justi-
fied in teaching Great Hritian
that America was United in pro-
tecting her rights and that she
was a nation of the world to be
The Civil war was a natural
consequence because a decayed
pillar was grafted into founda-
tion of the nation that finally
rent it in twain and the diseased
pillar extracted from the ruins
and a more solid union evolved.
Tin* Spanish-American war made
us one of the foremost nations of
thi‘ world and was fought in be-
half of civilization and humanity.
Every war in history has been
worth the blood shed and the
weaklings who denie this fact to-
day by preaching to the people
that war is not anything and that
commerce is everything is teach-
ing a doctrine that has no tru-
ism and if heeded will in time be-
little this nation in the eyes of
the world and will wreck it upon
the gibraltar of the god of mam-
Commerce is a delusion that
causes men to forget God,
their Country and exchang
honesty and virtue for gold. Traf-
fic in the commerce of the world
and the many scattered posses-
sions is the very fact that is giv-
ing Great Hritian the race for
her National existence today.
She stands in the same possition
today relative to the worlds com-
merce that Carthage stood at the
beginning of the first Punic war
and that Rome stood at the dawn
of the Christian epoch.
America as a Nation has the
history of the world before her
as a guide and if her people will
but take time from their greedy
pursuits of this growing disease
which saps the very best there is
in manhood away, to read the
warning that other nations have
left in their wake, there is no
reason why we should be wreck-
ed u|xm this same breaker, but
if we, as Americans listen to the
the falty and filthy wisdom of the
yellow Journalists of today who
are not students of history but of
“Trade,” we will find our ship of
state steered to the same grave-
yard of Nations, where all the
World Powers of the earth, both
ancient and modern have found
their last resting place but the
one Epitaph to mark their watery
tomb viz Commercialism.
