Only think of the Russian Nihilists. We were
repelled by their methods of terrorism ; but we
could not but admire their idealism and their utter
self-sacrifice. The same spirit of exaggeration has
found expression now in connection with Bol
shevism, and it still arouses fear in us by its
uncompromising terrorism.
It appears probable to me that not only will
Russia some day, and at a date not far distant,
save Europe in things material, but that the sorely
needed spiritual renewal will also come from there.
And if that is so, there would seem to be every
call for Western Europe, at this moment above all,
to pay very close attention both to the Russian
people and to the rapidly changing conditions in
their vast country.
