Excerpt from Alsace Lorraine or the Struggle of 2000 Years: As Pointing to a New Basis for Peace Among Nations

We seek a lasting peace; we seek it through war because only through a war of self defense and in maintenance of the fundamental rights of nations does such a peace seem possible. We seek a just, an honorable peace, in which wrongs shall be righted; conditions either restored or created under which for all time the warring nations can trust each other, deal with mutual respect and advantage, and no more rely on great armies, fleets of dreadnaughts, battle cruisers and such engines of death and destruction. These are world objects and in the official declarations of the President of the United States they have been given first place. The same may be said of the declarations of the Pope. This great, this universal objective, is to a greater or less extent, in view of all the nations; if not of their rulers, it at least has dawned or begins to dawn upon the masses. Cyclops may have but one eye but he can see that he ought not and need not sweat and tug forever under the burdens of war.

The more universal the object, the greater it looms and the smaller in comparison becomes the great number of objects and ambitions of the nations that cluster around it and arc in danger of beclouding it. These objects may be national in their scope; but we ascend into the commonwealth of nations and expect some attending sacrifices. Not without pain did the thirteen colonies yield some part of their independence to the United States and accept a limited sovereignty; but not without pain would they sec their rights again restored. In no war known to history have the issues, the conflicting rights and national ambitions, been so numerous and, perhaps, so involved. It goes without saying that no settlement, permanent, satisfactory in the long run, and marking a decided advance in world politics, can be made without sacrifice on the part of some, and perhaps of all, the contending nations. Not a sacrifice of men and money; this now goes awfully on while the voices of the dead cry for a new earth.
