Japan attacked the US at Pearl Harbor on Sunday, December 7, 1941. In his next regular talk on December 13, 1941, Ernest Holmes discusses the Evolutionary Principle and how democracy “as a political system, comes nearer to fulfilling a Divine Purpose than any other system of government.”

From there, Holmes points out the challenge the world then faced “where groups of totalitarian states seek to impose conditions upon the rest of us, which are fundamentally opposed to the true Principle of Reality.” In this historical statement by Holmes, he offers spiritual guidance for the US and the people of the world.
