Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 4, No. 1 March 12, 1941
If the moral revolution does not come about universally a material revolution is inescapable, said Mr. Menzies. Thus the Movement may be regarded as an escape from a bloody proletarian rising.
"Salient": "Would you say that history shows that moral change precedes material and social change?"
Mr. Menzies: "I think that history does show that. We see for example that the moral decadence of Rome led to its down fall."
"Salient": "Would you care to give any comment on Soviet Russia, the great exponent of the antithetical doctrine of material and political change?"
Mr. Menzies: "I myself have never been in Russia, but many of my friends have gone away keen and have returned sadly disappointed."
