Senator BROWN - I shall not enter into political recriminations now, because . I consider that the question I am discussing is too serious for such recriminations. I think I see clearly that in war-time it is possible to organize the entire community on a united basis and meet all the essential commitments. A united nation can go so far in time of war as to take three-quarters of its population from their ordinary avocations and place them in w'ar activities and, at the same time, feed and clothe the whole community and produce guns, aircraft, munitions and other requirements for the fighting forces. The reason is that there has been intense scientific organization of the whole community. Our financial system has undergone a complete change because ordinary methods of finance would not fit in with the new organization.
