Ferguson looks up and looks down at our chaotic little world, and finds it badly in need of reorganization. Others have done this before him. His distinction is that he employs a different set of binoculars. But in the course of his examination we learn several interesting facts.

We learn, for example, that Big Business is mischievous and often acts the part of the malicious dunce simply because we have either ignored it ourselves or given it a bad name. Big Business needs to be Montessori-ed. It needs the privilege of being allowed to play freely with the other youngsters of our social family - diplomacy, politics, and internationalism. Big Business has become lonesome and aggrieved. Its feelings are hurt, its legitimate activities are restricted, and consequently it acts up.

In the process of explaining the pranks of Big Business and just how it has come to afflict us with them, Mr. Ferguson comes upon the War. For the War we are deeply to blame. We have allowed Big Business - these modern high-tensioned agencies of socialization - to drift into the hands of a single class.

We have imagined that low-tensioned politics could make that class be social. And we have failed. If these be things which the reader has not seen for himself, he is recommended to look through Mr. Fergusons glass. He may not believe what he sees, but he will be seeing old things in a new light, which will be to his advantage.-The Advocate of Peace, Volume 78 [1916]
