The Changing Scene

by The Editorial Board 1939

THIS FIRST issue of FRONTIERS OF DEMOCRACY appears at a solemn time when on much of this world, man is fighting man. We take what small comfort we can from the fact that Americans today, a few weeks after the start of the war, do not yet seem to have closed their minds. There is neither the freezing pessimism that we can't stay out, nor the restrictive ness that comes with certainty as to just how we should conduct ourselves. So long as this restrained spirit of inquiry prevails, there is hope that we can keep before us the total picture of living. We must try to see ourselves as neutrals and try to understand what that means, to be sure. But important as that is, it is still only a part of die picture. If we stay neutral, we will be a neutral democracy; if we become engaged, we will become a democracy at war; after the peace, we will still be a democracy.
