About the Book

Excerpt from Imperialism: A Lecture Before the Society for Ethical Culture of Chicago, in Steinway Hall, February 12, 1899

Three great issues have been before the American people within the last twelve months. The first was whether this nation should put an end to Spanish Oppression in Cuba and set the island free. The sec ond was whether, having broken the Spanish power in the Philippines, the nation should thereafter return the islands to Spain or turn them over to some other Power or leave them to themselves, in any case wash ing its own hands of them; or whether it should as sume some manner of responsibility for them. The third issue is now before us. We have freed Cuba; we have accepted responsibility for the Philippines - and the question now is, how shall we discharge that re sponsibility, in what spirit shall we act, do we really wish to own the Philippines or do we wish to make them free?

Each one of these issues has tried, or is trying, keenly the temper of the people. Some thought in the first place that Cuba was no concern of ours - ab horred the war altogether. Later, many believed that we should do anything rather than charge ourselves with the Philippines - some, like Prof. Norton, even advocating leaving them to Spain. But the main body of the people was moved in both instances byhumaner, more generous thoughts. The nation has acted on the assumption that we were our brother's keeper - and even to islands in distant seas we have stretched out the friendly hand. The nation has as sumed responsibility and has even agreed to pay Spain $20, 000, 000 for a 'quit -claim deed to the islands. From a legal point of view the Philippines are in our hands.
