From The Fatherland, February 10, 1915. —This seems to be typical of the sophistry by which German apologists justified the invasion of Belgium in the First World War. It would have been far better to stick to “it was regrettably necessary” than to spin out these useless and unconvincing arguments, which make the case seem even worse by suggesting that German thinkers are altogether blind to the simplest moral principles.
