More people than ever are thinking; thinking harder than ever before. The whole world has been thrown into a state of turmoil and confusion, and the old order is obviously crumbling. What will emerge from this state of flux?
Can the Anglo-Saxon people lead the world back to sanity? Has democracy failed? These, and many similar questions, are being asked today. Public opinion must be mobilized to demand that victory for which we all yearn. Every individual must accept his responsibility and join the growing army of democrats – an army which marches towards the dawn of real democracy; an army with a purpose which has been the driving force in the British struggle for freedom. The growth of the democratic idea has been a living experiment from the time of Magna Charta – down through history: Wat Tyler, Wilberforce, Shaftesbury, never perfected, never giving up. Wherever they have gone the British people have taken the idea of democracy with them. The great British traditions have taken the idea of democracy with them. The great British traditions of liberty and human dignity, expressing themselves in the language of our greatest writers and poets, go marching on.
