THE statement of the Prime Minister that the aims of Great Britain during the present struggle must be sharply differentiated into war aims and peace aims amounted to much more than a reply to the demands for a clarification of what is to be our attitude when the War comes to an end. It is essential, however, that the wider peace aims should be constantly reiterated in order that they may remain fixed before our eyes. It would be more than regrettable if the ideals of freedom, liberty and equality that have led the Allies to take up arms were lost sight of even temporarily in our efforts to defeat the enemy. Mr. J. B. Priestley, in speaking of the drama, said recently that a momentary blurring of the objects for which we are fighting would be enough to invalidate our reasons for having gone to war.
