The Lusitania. Herod''s nightmare.
"Are they crying: 'Mother' or 'Murder'?"

'We base that deed [the sinking of the "Lusitania"] on the claims of the higher humanity which is the foundation of every national life. What appears inhumanity to the Americans was in the higher sense humanity.... National self-respect demands that a state shall not lay aside its holy duties, even if their fulfilment seems to involve harshness or cruelty. Would that the Americans could grasp this conception of humanity." -- Quotation from a leading German newspaper in J. Dewey's 'On Understanding the Mind of Germany, ' The Atlantic Monthly, February 1916.'
1916
