Does the Sea Unite?

Does the Sea Unite?

It is one thing for Geography to dominate politics as hitherto in the United States. It is another thing for politics to dominate Geography. Have the English-speaking people of the British Empire the political genius to bring into closer trade relationship their geographically sundered lands—also, perhaps, India and the colonies—so as to give practical meaning to the principle that “the sea unites, it does not divide”? At a time when politics has cut Europe into high-tariffed compartments—a far cry from Briand's “United States of Europe”—have the British Dominions the will and the power to reverse the process? America, Europe, Russia—even Japan and China—are all keen spectators of this great Ottawa pageant.
