Excerpt from China's Claims at the Peace Table

That China has ample justification in her claim of readjusting her relations with foreign powers, no one will deny. But will the European and the Europeanstates consent to such a readjustment unconditionally? Surely they will, if not for the sake of China, then for the sake of the newly founded League. The League of Nations will be absurd and meaningless if it will tolerate further continuance of old immoral as well as impolitic policies practiced by the powers in the Orient. With the birth of the League, a new era has been inaugurated. The age of imperialism, im perialism of any description, is gone forever. China is just as tired of her humiliations as the world is tired of wars. The world democracy cries for the elimination of future wars; and the new regime of liberalism calls for an immediate renunciation of China's humiliations. All the wrongs that China has suffered from other powers during the last century, and for which she herself has never been responsible, must be one and all righted. Before the League of Nations can be secure and before China can become an effective and efficient member of the League her complete sovereignty and independence must be re stored. Before the world is safe for democracy, the Pacific must be preserved pacific. In this appeal China is aiming, neither at revenge nor at her own nationalistic interest, but at the perfection of the League ideals and principles in deeds as well as in letter. She is sure that the other members of the League will share her aim, which is common to all and antagonistic to none.
