A prominent American lawyer argues that the chances of preserving world peace will be enhanced by pursuing a general policy of live-and-let-live as far as ideologies are concerned, and by diminishing the economic and political isolation of each nation. He proposes that the "status quo" Powers, by the process of "peaceful change," meet the legitimate demands of the so-called "have-nots" in order to avoid compelling the latter to resort to war to gain their ends.
