An excerpt from the author's introduction
This pamphlet is the outgrowth of the author's experience, over a period of several years, in trying to help students and others discuss calmly and analytically some of the basic problems confronting the modern world in the sphere of government and economics. It need hardly be said that these problems have become the focal points of intensely emotional reactions. Such emotional reactions, unfortunately, are not likely to be critical or rational. Time and again, in the course of his professional and personal experience, the author has been shocked and depressed by the extremely loose use of all sorts of terms, labels, epithets, and stereotypes, and by the almost robot-like repetition of the most obvious propagandistic cliches. It has been particularly discouraging to find serious-minded students and otherwise well-informed adults falling into such semantic traps. Participation in many classes and discussion groups has convinced the author that when people clearly understand the terms that are being used (and misused); when they are able to express exactly what they are for and what they are against —then bitterness has a tendency to fade away, and the underlying factor of common humanness and brotherhood has a chance to come to the surface. It is only then that discussion of controversial issues can be really profitable and men can approach their pressing social problems with some hope of reaching rational solutions.
