1938 – 39 Welsh Theosophy
and the Build up to War
years before World War II General Secretary, Peter Freeman gave the following messages
about world peace in the annual report of the Theosophical Society in
International Peace and Goodwill
While the world stands terrified at the possibilities of the extension of war, and no practicable proposal for minimizing the difficulties appears likely of immediate acceptance by the various countries concerned, the commonsense proposal of our, Dr Arundale should appeal to every member of the Society, and it is hoped, to many others. The personal and direct use of the powers of will and direct thought for the solution of the problem along the lines suggested may prove a factor of greater importance than can be realized now, and may become the most practicable move towards establishing World Peace and Brotherhood. We cordially support this call for active service, and many will co-operate in the scheme. Names and addresses of those participating, together with the time chosen may be sent to the General Secretary for forwarding to Dr Arundale, who desires to have a record of all who are helping in the work.
The World Problem
Threats and rumours of war still loom
over the World, particularly in
The Society can lend its aid in such a solution, by an intelligent understanding of the problem, by its desire to secure justice for every country, and by its efforts to practice brotherhood throughout the world.
By its Goodwill Message from the Children, its outline of the
proposal of an International Equity Tribunal and an International Police Force
and by its long championship of World Peace,
