In religions we find that Christ taught that we
are all children of God and the we must love each other.
Gotama, the founder of Buddhism, taught that that we must struggle to attain the communion
of the cosmic soul - compassion being its fundamental
ethical teaching. While Confucious declared that four
seas are brothers - such are the fundamental
teaching of the founders of three great existing religions.

If the facts exposed in this brief survey are true, it is difficult
to find the fundamental conflict between the essential
factors that really govern racial [efemeris?].
It is still more difficult to find facts to substantiate
racial superiority - except within domains of material
things. Here, of course, the white race dominate.
But material prosperity - is not the final criterion of
superiority for spiritual perfection may
be obtained quite apart from material things.
If, therefore, the world is interested in materialism and
the East in spiritualism, is that a thing which should
be looked upon as a mark of superiority or inferiority?
