The Jazz of Patriotism free pdf Excerpt from The Jazz of Patriotism: An Anti-War Play During the years 1917-1918 while the country in which I happened to have been born was weltering in the debauchery of nations called the Great War, certain things took place at home which arc not being shown up in their true light in the history books which the public is now receiving. We find them mentioned sometimes as base digressions of conduct on the part of a few stubborn radicals or referred to as crimes of terrorist reds, but most frequently we notice the reactionary press ignoring them with great care and shrewdness. The military party today would like to have the people forget that Pacifists and non-conformists existed during the war. Gladly would they bury their memory in a grave of oblivion so deep that no inquiring posterity might unearth it, but this is not possible. The war heretics who endured the defamations and persecutions of their nationalistic and belligerent contemporaries have shown themselves of such stuff that the future will have to reckon with them, and the sooner they arc recognized at their full social value the sooner will the world's progress be assured. In writing and publishing this play which deals with actual facts and circumstances of the war period, I have had a two-fold intent - to draw a picture of life among the stay-at-homes and to bring to light the elements of a profound and misunderstood philosophy. As a picture my work may be too literal for estheticism. Art, we are told, has no purpose behind it, but on the other hand, we are privileged to use any means we may fancy to express what is burning within us, leaving the result to the tender mercies of our critics.
