The Message

by A.J. Dawson

Prophecy--and incidental propaganda--by imaginary retrospect is a literary device of some antiquity. And it lends itself admirbly to the conceit of persons who find that the cherished ways of their contemporaries are badly in need of mending. It is this quite questionable method which is employed by A.J. Dawson...to illustrate the folly of what has been called "Little Englandism," to glorify the imperial policies which are identified with the names of Mr. Joseph Chamberlain and the late Cecil Rhodes, to throw opprobrium upon "disarmament," and to solidify and encourage the British imperial sentiment as opposed to the cosmopolite sentiment of humanity. --New York Times
