Description

Excerpt from The Round Table, Vol. 10: A Quarterly Review of the Politics of the British Empire; December, 1919, to September, 1920 King remained to discharge the office of president, was unique. It made England the shining example of free institutions. It also disposed the powerful dynasties of Spain and France to regard England as their natural enemy and to work for her downfall. The great struggle, which occupied more than two centuries, was thought to be closed with the final downfall of the Emperor Napoleon. But in Central Europe the dynastic principle was still too strong to make the process thorough or safe. By the cunning of a Bismarck the national spirit of a great and power ful people was made the foundation of a new system of absolute government, skilfl veiled behind a screen of constitutional forms. How successful the imposture was may be realised when we remember that it was possible in the early days of this war for German propagandists in America to represent the German Empire as a republic based on manhood suffrage. The system could only be safe in the hands of a master so great as Bismarck, and when thrown from power he lived to see the natural propensities of a dynasty develop. The civilised world had thought itself finally committed to the principles of liberty. Blinded by the smoke screen of manhood suffrage, it realised too late that a dynasty had reappeared in its midst more dangerous to the liberties of the world than the old dynas ties of France or Spain.
