DEMOCRACY IN ENGLAND

flow from its existence. It provides also a state-power strong enough to pursue an imperialist policy that will secure opportunities to the home investor, to the merchant anxious for new fields to exploit, and to the aspirant for administrative office overseas. Nothing is more useful for the building up of a strong state authority than nationalism. Any movement of international federalism can only take place at its expense. Here again, therefore, there is conflict in democratic ideology. At its birth it expresses the rights of man as common to the members of all nations, and the French revolutionaries issue an appeal to the peoples of Europe, challenging despotism everywhere. Federal implications clearly are contained in such an attitude. But later those who act in its name win empires over which to govern, where its writ no longer runs, and the rights of man become the rights of Englishmen, Americans, Frenchmen, Germans, operating within a limited national field.
This wedding of democracy and nationalism has certainly not rendered democracy productive of world order. On the contrary, international anarchy has been the price paid for this method of strengthening the internal cohesion of the state. But anarchy in the external field has not failed to have its repercussions on internal political organisation. Often enough it has acted as a boomerang to return and destroy the movement that projected it. That libertarian government even within democracy largely disappears in time of war is too obvious to need emphasis. What is not always so clearly seen is that the needs of the state in a world of sovereign states include a military machine that is difficult to keep in subjection to the civil power even in time of peace, and which at moments of civil discord is peculiarly liable to overthrow its creators. This is the lesson to be drawn from the
