Do you resent its interference with your plans for living? Do you take time off to discuss with other 'disgruntled people how war is changing- your entire mode of life? Do you object to sacrificing non-essentials to keep your freedom? If you do, you are serving the Axis. Do you question every act of those in authority, forgetting that it was you who elected them to power? Do you from the security of your own front porch or corner store waste valuable time saying what should have been done by the men thousands of miles away who are fighting twenty- four hours a day and giving their lives to keep the war from your doorstep? Do you doubt the loyalty of that ally who has fought the Axis foi,- three long years until there is not a family even on the most secluded upland farm that has not felt the dread hand of loss? Do you question the loyalty, intelli- • gence, ability of your own sons, and your neighbors' sons ? If you do, you are serving the Axis. Do yoCi delay to serve your own ends first ? Do you give half-hearted service ? Are you sticking to your own personal task; or doing the war; job you could do? Are you relyingon others to protect you and dodging your civilian defense job because it is hard work? Are you skimping on full time, and not giving overtime ? If you are, you are serving the Axis. Do you stand on your rights ? Do you demand preferential treatment for yourself, or your community or your group? Do you .refuse to do your part in this war until you are paid to do it? Are you a "mercenary" soldier, not a "citizen-soldier" ? Do you think only of yourself and your narrow circle of life insteavYof the nation as a whole? Do you demand the privileges of democracy and isnore its responsibilities?, ff y6u'd6/jr6u"are^servuig the Aj&s! '" '" Do you discriminate against your fellow Americans ? Are you a disseminator of the poison of hatred with which Hitler is trying to gas this country into confusion? Do you generalize about racial and religious groups—passing on as gospel truth the lies handed out by Herr Goebbels and his emissaries —forgetting they are not groups but individuals, neighbors with Nvhom you have grown up, who have lived with, you, suffered with you, sacrificed with you and rejoiced with you? Do you fan class hatreds with stories of greed for money and power, suspecting both Industry and Labor of treason, forgetting that they know they have just as much to lose in this war as you have? If you do, you are serving the Axis. Now is not the time for a divided allegiance! This is OUR war—the war of all of us. This is the UNITED States of America. We are Americans all. Don't serve the Axis! Appreciate America--" Be thankful for America; speak well of our country. This is our day, .our time, in which to keep the light of liberty burning brightly for people everywhere to behold. Some people, pleading craftily for totalitarianism, disparage democracy, ridicule-it,, deny its virtues, its sound principles; and they tell us that we'have no freedom at all. We know better. The government is our government. We have elected it —all of us together. Opposition parties flourish. They speak and print and use the radio. This is freedom. It is unknown in the dictator countries. We go to church—^to the church of our choice, and no one interferes with any of us. Ministers of religion may criticize the government, insist upon reforms, plead for the underprivileged, oppose persecution, discrimination, injustice. Pastors are not spied upon by the police, reported, arrested and silenced. Children may be educated religiously from childhood; our Sunday schools, colleges and theological seminaries are open. And they shall remain open! This is religious freedom in America..It is unknown—utterly and completely absent in the dictator countries. Go into an American schoolroom. You will see boys and girls there who come from well-to-do families, and from poor families. You will see children from Protestant homes, Catholic homes, Jewish homes. You will observe that their teacher is their guide who instructs them in the knowledge of principles and ideals, and in the formation of judgment values. Go into a Nazi schoolroom. There you will see children from only so-called "Aryan" homes. Others—the so-called "non-Aryans"—are. denied even the right to such education as the land affords. You will observe that the teacher's function is not to teach truth as such, but NAZI ideas and NAZI slogans. The teacher is the children's master who must stifle intelligent inquiry in the interests of stupid obedience to the dictator and the state. One schoolroom is built upon the principle of American freedom. The other is built upon the principle of totalitarian tyranny. For the preservation of this freedom, and for its endurance into a brighter day, we fight today—and work—and pray that Almighty God will "defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people the multitudes brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues."
