A pacifist will often - at least nowadays -
by Christian Lous Lange

A pacifist will often - at least nowadays -
be an internationalist and vice versa.
But history shows us that a pacifist need not think internationally.
- Christian Lous Lange

behind protectionism and militarism.

The free trade movement in the middle of the last century

- Christian Lous Lange

It is an accepted commonplace in psychology that the
spiritual level of people acting as a crowd is far
lower than the mean of each individual's intelligence or morality.
- Christian Lous Lange

But teleological considerations can lead no further
than to a belief and a hope.
They do not give certainty.
- Christian Lous Lange

Hand in hand with nationalist economic isolationism,
militarism struggles to maintain the sovereign state
against the forward march of internationalism.
- Christian Lous Lange

Only recently, during the nineteenth century,
and then only in Europe, do we meet forms of the state
which have been created by a deliberate national feeling.
- Christian Lous Lange

Moreover, if the territorial state is to continue as
the last word in the development of society,
then war is inevitable.
- Christian Lous Lange

For the state by its nature claims sovereignty,
the right to an unlimited development of power,
determined only by self-interest.
It is by nature anarchistic.
- Christian Lous Lange

History shows us that other highly developed forms
of civilization have collapsed.
Who knows whether the same fate does not await our own?

It simply limits their scope more than one-sided nationalism does.
- Christian Lous Lange

Technology is a useful servant but a dangerous master.
- Christian Lous Lange

All species capable of grasping this fact manage better
in the struggle for existence than those which rely
upon their own strength alone:
the wolf,
which hunts in a pack, has a greater chance of survival than the lion,
which hunts alone.
- Christian Lous Lange

The theoretically unrestricted right to develop power,
to wage war against other states, is antisocial and is doubly dangerous,
because the state as a mass entity represents a low
moral and intellectual level.
- Christian Lous Lange

It is characteristic that this should take place just
when it is becoming more and more clear to all who think about the matter,
that technically and economically we have left the
territorial state behind us.
- Christian Lous Lange

The sovereign state has in our times become a lethal
danger to human civilization because technical developments
enable it to employ an infinite number and variety of means of destruction.
- Christian Lous Lange

Every time economic and technical development takes a step forward,
forces emerge which attempt to create political forms for what,
on the economic-technical plane, has already more or less become reality.
- Christian Lous Lange

The idea of eternity lives in all of us.
We thirst to live in a belief which raises our small
personality to a higher coherence -
a coherence which is human and yet superhuman,
absolute and yet steadily growing and developing,
ideal and yet real.
- Christian Lous Lange

Internationalism is a community theory of society which is founded on economic,
spiritual, and biological facts.
It maintains that respect for a healthy development
of human society and of world civilization requires
that mankind be organized internationally.
- Christian Lous Lange

The territorial state is such an ancient form of society -
here in Europe it dates back thousands of years -
that it is now protected by the sanctity of age and the glory of tradition.
A strong religious feeling mingles with the respect
and the devotion to the fatherland.
- Christian Lous Lange

Internationalism on the other hand admits that spiritual
achievements have their roots deep in national life;
from this national consciousness art and literature
derive their character and strength and on it even
many of the humanistic sciences are firmly based.
- Christian Lous Lange

Like all social theories, internationalism must seek
its basis in the economic and technical fields;
here are to be found the most profound and the most
decisive factors in the development of society.
- Christian Lous Lange

The simultaneous reactions elicited all over the world
by the reading of newspaper dispatches about the same events create,
as it were, a common mental pulse beat for the whole of civilized mankind.
- Christian Lous Lange

Propaganda must appeal to mankind's better judgment
and to the necessary belief in a better future.
For this belief, the valley of the shadow of death
is but a war station on the road to the blessed summit.
- Christian Lous Lange

In particular, the efforts to reestablish peace after
the World War have been directed toward the formation
of states and the regulation of their frontiers according
to a consciously national program.
- Christian Lous Lange

Internationalism is a social and political theory,
a certain concept of how human society ought to be organized,
and in particular a concept of how the nations ought
to organize their mutual relations.
- Christian Lous Lange

Just as characteristic, perhaps, is the intellectual
interdependence created through the development of
the modern media of communication:
post,
telegraph, telephone, and popular press.
- Christian Lous Lange

Modern techniques have torn down state frontiers,
both economical and intellectual.
The growth of means of transport has created a world
market and an opportunity for division of labor embracing
all the developed and most of the undeveloped states.
- Christian Lous Lange

The main concept is that of an international solidarity
expressed in practice through worldwide division of labor:
free trade is the principal point in the program of internationalism.
- Christian Lous Lange

Today we stand on a bridge leading from the territorial
state to the world community.
Politically, we are still governed by the concept of the territorial state;
economically and technically,
we live under the auspices of worldwide communications and worldwide markets.
- Christian Lous Lange

Militarism is basically a way of thinking,
a certain interpretation of the function of the state;
this manner of thinking is,
moreover, revealed by its outer forms:
by armaments and state organization.
- Christian Lous Lange

Upon the union of the male germ cell with the female egg cell,

of the individual with all its organs,
and dies only with the individual.
