Description

Excerpt from The Radiant, Vol. 10: March, 1917 We are standing today in the brightness of the morning of a new century. Through peaceful victories we have advanced to a point undreamed of by our forefathers. We have come to realize more and more that we are our brother's keeper. The world is tired of the past, of oppression and bloodshed. The views of people in reference to each other have changed. Convenient means of communication and travel are making the world a unit. In the place of the loom and the spinning jenny we have the factories and factory spindles. The Twentieth Century Limited, runs from New York to Chicago in eighteen hours. It is this unity, caused by the development of the surroundings of mankind, which seeks to establish means other than war to settle international dis putes. To illustrate that there is a need for a means of settling international disputes and a waving of the banner of the vic tory of peace, turn and gaze upon the unmerciful harvest of Mars in the so - called civilized Europe of today. No more do we hear the hum of the wheel of progress, but in its stead we hear the faint sound of ruined Belgium. Instead of the beautiful fields covered with bountiful harvest we see a great extensive region desolate and overspread with ruins, its forests dying as if blasted by lightning, its magnificent buildings rent as if by an earthquake. While not long ago the sun smiled down upon no more fruitful and no more happy spot. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
