Civilisation and the life of nations are governed by the same laws as prevail throughout nature and organic life.
Asia is not going to be civilised after the methods of the West. There is too much Asia and she is too old.
As long as we are not actually destroyed, we can work to gain greater understanding of other peoples and to try to present to the peoples of the world the values of our own beliefs. We can do this by demonstrating our conviction that human life is worth preserving and that we are willing to help others to enjoy benefits of our civilization just as we have enjoyed it.
