Excerpt from Prussian Memories 1864-1914
There are no surprises to him who studies history and this great war has surprised no one save those who seek their light from the Priests of Pacifism.
The United States has been on the verge of war, for which there has been abundant provocation with Germany, - to say nothing of our neighbours across the Pacific. But had we been as meek as Belgium, our peril could be the less real. We are a country piled high with dollars and no one to guard them. England so far has acted as our big brother and Germany dares make no move until John Bull is asleep. We should have a per manent peace footing of one million men; and these should be organized, after the Swiss method, as a force of reserves. Every voter should be qualified to take his share in the defence of his country, while he would be called away from his civil pur suits for not more than a few weeks in each year.
