To quickly assess the difficulty of the text, read a short excerpt:
It prolongs the evil reign of militancy, and so dela3-s all efforts for social, political and industrial reform. It debases labor and gives rise to class distinc- tions, and so delays the dawn of human brotherhood. In so far as it secures the domination of one type of civilization it prevents that variation of types which is an essential condition to all progress. When a single race or civilization dominates the world it will ring the death-knell of the human race. The Maoris, the Hawaiians, th...e Filipinos, tiie Cubans, are all more comi)etent to rule themselves than we are to govern them, judged by any test that implies their permanent betterment and survival as u people. We have begun at the wrong end in our efforts to civilize the world. No savage race ever failed to meet the approaches of a supei'ioi- people with friendly salutations and receptive minds for all that makes for their true'' uplifting when they have been ai)proaclied in a just and humane spirit. Science supplements the assurance of ethics and religion that the way of peace and brotherly kindness is the only way to help the weaker races.
