The Empire

A look back at the speaker's previous speech in January of 1941, and conditions in Britain at that time. The different picture in Britain today. A consideration of the war in relation to Empire. Making sure that criticism of the Empire is based on accurate and complete knowledge and not on mere emotion. The effect of war, so far, on the British Empire. A demonstration to the rest of the world and to ourselves that the independence of the great self-governing Dominions was a fact and not a fiction. The realization that however divergent we may be in our several policies, we are all actuated by a common purpose. Bringing into the limelight our declared purpose of permitting any of our dependencies or colonies complete independence as soon as they show themselves capable of governing themselves. The links which connect the countries of the British Empire. Spreading information about the Empire as a public service of inestimable value.
