Says Popular Notion of Term Has
Caused Considerable His-
This is the sixth of the series of
articles by Stuart H. Perry, editor of
the Adrian Telegram, which were first
printed in the Telegram and in the
Detroit Free Press.
Isolation from the rivalries of other
powers has always been popular with
many of our people, but there is no
one word which spreads more misun-
derstanding. There are two kinds of
isolation-the imaginary kind that we
have talked about so much in the past,
and real isolation which until recently
faced us in the future
In the early years of our national
life we were actually in a state of
political isolation. It was possible in
those days, because we had no inter-
ests outside our own borders It was
not three'thousand miles of water that
protected us, so much as it was the
fact that no European power had any
motive for disturbing us.
But as our strength, wealth and am-
bition grew, our isolation diminished.
We saw clearly that we were destined
to spread across the continent to the
Pacific ocean, and we were determined
to gua'd our future interests as a
great continental nation.
By the year 1820 our isolation had
ceased, and from that time we have in
effect been in alliance with Great Brit-
ain for the purpose of preserving
American and British possessions in
this hemisphere and preventing any
encroachments by other powers.
Monroe Doctrine Started Things
This arrangement started with the
famous Monroe doctrine, which was
suggested byreat Britain almost ex-
actly a centry ago. England sug-
gested it because of the advantage of
having the United States in effect
guarantee British interests on this
side; and we supported it because of
the equally great advantage in having
the omnipotent British navy stand be-
tween us and the dangerous powers
of Europe.
