PREFACE TO THE FIRST
is an ancient saying (which will bear consideration in these
days of change and unrest) that the devil is God upside down.
A consideration of many of the injurious and tyrannical practices
which obtain support in Great Britain and America under the
cloak of such words as justice and Democracy, and the object
lesson provided by Russia, and possibly by Italy and Spain as
the consequences of their extension, may serve to emphasise
the necessity for clear thinking in this matter.
the following pages an endeavour has been made to indicate the
general lines which, it would appear, are essential in dealing
not only with the concrete problems, but the perverted psychology
which, in combination, threaten civilisation.
