The war in Europe is the backdrop for this intricate discussion of the evolution of religion, social order, and law. "Curious it is that after ten thousand years of social experimentation, the would would be divided to the point of hideous warfare by two opposing theories of national growth...Strange it would be then, if, in the midst of this rude awakening, no careful effort should be made to discern, in the thousands of years of forming and reforming, of such ideals, some rationale of progress, some actual formula of social evolution, and and thereby appraise the present and perhaps shape the future." The author warns of impending totalitarianism in the United States.
