Possibly reprinted from the "World Events" column from the Monthly Review, a publication featuring news analysis and political commentary. Scott Nearing (1883-1983) was an American economist, professor, and political activist. He openly advocated for peace and opposed the United States' involvement in wars including World War I and World War II. Nearing's views had a lasting effect and influenced many who opposed the Vietnam War. In this article, Nearing speaks against war, using World War II as a main example. He discusses the possible roads to peace and argues there are shortcomings with alliances, leagues, and unions between nations and instead advocates for a "worldism" in which countries think not of their relations with countries but with the world as a whole. Excerpt: "Peoples tolerate and support war because they believe that victory will bring them the blessings of peace. They deceive themselves. Through the centuries every sowing of armed violence has produced a harvest of hatred and resentment and sown the seeds of future wars. If military victory brought peace, surely the complete and crushing victory of the United Nations should have ushered in a millennium of goodwill, brotherly feelings, sympathy, understanding, tolerance, mutual aid and general security and well-being. Instead, World War II, precisely like its predecessors, has brought in its train acute scarcity, insecurity, fear, hatred, antagonisms, recrimination, accusations, military preparations and localized military conflicts."
