THE CABINET

to a general policy, but the expression of the same general policy in legislation. The distinction habitually made between the agencies responsible for these two types of government action is only one of convenience in the modern State. The closer the co-operation between them the more integrated and efficient is the conduct of government likely to be.
Government by consent is the formula of democracy. Unless men are sheep there must be some element of consent among a large number of people in all forms of government. The real question is how far consent is active. How far is it made, that is to say, so constructive that a big proportion of the people see in the Government's purposes their own? In any society there is need not only for consent, co-operation, combination; there is need also for leadership. So much time must not be taken in trying to maximise consent that there is none left for action. To find the best mixture of the two is the chief problem of democracy. We could not rearm when in our view it was necessary, said Mr. Baldwin as Prime Minister, because public opinion was not then ready for it. Was he being a good democrat in thus shewing his willingness to make his views of public necessity subservient to those of a majority? Or should he earlier have bluntly expressed his own sentiments and endeavoured to make the country follow his lead? In 1923 with the question of a tariff he followed the latter course, and failed. It may be said that it is useless to lead where the country will not follow. Statesmanship involves reconciling the ideal with the actual. But where the alternative lies between conducting the community along a popular path to disaster and trying to persuade it to adopt another and better one the statesman has to remember his responsibility to lead, as well as to interpret, opinion.
