It was by no mere chance that the United States came to be known as the richest and the freest country of the world. This is a land of plenty because of definite, understandable causes, each of which we have clearly defined.
The desire for plenty may be selfish, but we all know that it is a natural desire. Andrew Carnegie understood this when he decided to give away his huge fortune, but guided as he was by the wisdom of a lifetime of practical experience in dealing with people, he safe-guarded his gift by attaching to it certain conditions with which all who receive any part of it must comply.
Carnegie adopted a novel method for the distribution of his riches because he recognized the weakness of mankind in wanting something for nothing.
He knew that men in all walks of life, all down through the past, have been looking for a land flowing with milk and honey. He also knew that the gift of riches in any form, without some sort of consideration in return, generally harms more than it benefits the one who receives it. Therefore he wisely attached to his gift certain conditions by which those who receive it are protected against this common weakness of desiring something for nothing.
Looking backward into the history of mankind, Mr. Carnegie recognized that this desire for something for nothing was the object of the search of the scouts who were sent out by Moses and Joshua, because the children of Israel, after they had worked in slavery in Egypt for many years, making brick without straw, had escaped the Pharaohs and were waiting, after a long period in the wilderness, for an opportunity to cross over the sea into the land of plenty.
The glowing description of plenty in that land served as the incentive which enabled their leaders, against strong opposition, to hold the solidarity of the people until they reached their objectives. A counterpart of this same story is found in the migration of subdued people from Old England to the New World.
They came not only in search of a land of material plenty, but for a land which afforded plenty of opportunities for the expression of personal initiative , freedom of worship , freedom of speech, and the very purpose of their migration served as an assurance of the success of the most outstanding step ever taken by any group in modern history.
They developed a land of plenty. The plenty came from their efforts simply because their endeavors were based upon a sound philosophy, a constructive objective which Andrew Carnegie recognized centuries later, and he not only converted it into a huge fortune for himself, but he left to the American people of today a simple set of rules—a Masters-Key—by which they too may acquire riches.
Out of their pioneering toil down through the years the descendants of those pilgrims of progress have built a civilization never before known in the history of the world; a culture which exceeds the greatest culture of all times; standards of living which are higher than ever before known to mankind; conveniences, comforts, luxuries, opportunities available to the humblest person, such as the world had never known.
All of these advantages were the result of a sound foundation—the foundation stones of a budding new democracy; something new under the sun; a modified form of perfect state which was destined to prove successful because it was practical.
Such a civilization had never before been known in the entire history of mankind. There have been many periods in history when the advance of civilization was heralded with glowing terms, yet the civilization of the particular age in each instance was confined to a relatively small percentage of the people. The difference between each of these periods of the distant past and the present, which we of the New World enjoy, lies in the fact that the masses of people of the past were under the heels of sovereigns, many of whom were tyrants, while we enjoy a standard of living which was unknown even to the kings of those days.
Thus we represent a difference between the cultural eras of the past and the culture of today. Study if you will the picture of the advantages enjoyed by the American people today, even to the lowliest and the humblest. Free education, free entertainment, the radio, the automobile, the airplane, the network of free highways, advanced modes of communication, free worship—these and thousands of other advantages denied to the peasants of the past are now the common property of all of the people in America today.
This difference, which is due to the fundamental difference in motives and objectives, has been made possible because of practical developments under the American way of life which have never been experienced in Europe or in any other part of the Old World. In America men and women have been free to follow the dictates of their own consciences; they have had freedom of worship, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of political convictions, freedom for the fullest exercise of their own personal initiative in any calling of their choice, and they have been protected by a form of government which assured them the fruits of their labors.
This has arisen out of the fact that freedom, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness constituted the basis of the development of our young republic, with its program of plenty as the goal of every citizen.
As workers began to express their personal initiative as individuals, and later as groups; later still for security and protection as corporations, with the capital financed by workers and non-workers, the people learned the art of salesmanship, the art of competition, the blessings of individual initiative, and the necessity of honest production to justify the art of advertising.
All of these factors combined have justified greater production at lower cost, that more people may afford to purchase American commodities, that more people may be engaged in manufacturing. This, briefly stated, is the heart of the American system—a well-expressed faith, thrift, co-operation, confidence in each other, personal initiative, and a sense of fairness in human relationships.
In describing this story of the road to riches under the American way of life, it is necessary that the reader supply a part of the story by his own thoughts and by comparing our statements with his own experiences.
This in turn makes it necessary for the reader to have a clear picture of the history of the American sources of riches in order that he may be sure of appropriating his share of those riches. We are face to face with a New Social Order, and we may well recognize its nature, and anticipate if we can tell where it is leading us.
One thing of which we can be sure—that we wish no such New Order as the European dictators have forced upon their people. We have had liberty, freedom and the right to exercise personal initiative for so long that we could not, and we shall not, willingly give up these privileges. Our feeling toward dictators, who get their power by robbing others of their right to liberty, was expressed eloquently by Colonel Robert G.
Ingersoll, in his appraisal of Napoleon, viz:. I gazed upon the sarcophagus of rare and nameless marble in which rest at last the ashes of the restless man. Helena, with his arms calmly folded behind his back gazing steadfastly out upon the sad and solemn sea.
And I said, I would rather have been a poor French peasant and worn wooden shoes; I would rather have lived in a hut with the vines growing purple in the amorous kisses of the autumn sun, with my loving wife knitting by my side as the day died out of the sky, with my children upon my knees and their arms about my neck; yes, I would rather have been that poor peasant and gone down to the tongueless silence of the dreamless dust, than to have been that imperial impersonation of force and murder known as Napoleon the Great.
In this spirit do we approach the description of the Master-Key, from the use of which come all riches known to the American people.
Let it be known at the outset that when we speak of riches we have in mind all riches ; not merely those represented by bank balances and material things. We have in mind the riches of human relationships through which every American citizen may exercise to the fullest the privilege of personal initiative in whatever direction he chooses; and the riches of the system of free enterprise which has made American industry the envy of the whole world; and the riches of a free press, free public schools and free churches.
Thus, when we speak of riches we have reference to the abundant life which is everywhere available to the people of the United States, and obtainable with a minimum amount of effort. Meanwhile, let it be understood that we shall offer no suggestions to anyone as to the nature of the riches for which he should aim, nor the amount he should undertake to acquire. Fortunately the American way of life offers an abundance of all forms of riches, sufficient in both quality and quantity to satisfy all reasonable human desires, but we sincerely hope that somehow every reader will aim for his share, not only of the things that money can buy, but of the things that money cannot buy!
It is with profound grief that we see so many of our fellowmen eating the husks and throwing away the rich grain of their American opportunity to live a full and abundant life, which consists of both the tangible and the intangible riches of a great nation such as ours.
We shall not undertake to tell any man how to live his life, but we know, from having observed both the rich and the poor of America, that material riches alone are no guarantee of happiness. We have never yet found a truly happy person who was not engaged in some form of service by which others were benefited. And, we do know many who are wealthy in material things, but have not found happiness.
We mention these observations not to preach, but to quicken those who, because of the great abundance of material riches in America, take them for granted, and who have lost sight of the priceless things of life that are to be acquired only through the intangible riches we have mentioned. Although the American people already enjoy the highest standard of living existing in the whole world, we are not satisfied with this standard, and we propose to describe how we believe it can be raised still higher.
Our belief is not based upon the false hope of something for nothing , but it is founded on a philosophy which has the advantage of having been tested and proved practical by more than five hundred of the most distinguished men of achievement this country has ever known—among them Andrew Carnegie. The philosophy is inseparably associated with the legacy which Mr.
Carnegie left to the American people, and we are prepared to prove its soundness because it has already been tested and is being tested daily by hundreds of thousands of beneficiaries located in practically every town, village and city of the United States and in many foreign countries. And there were young men and young women—mere boys and girls—who were filled with hope and courage and eagerness to learn the way to riches.
There were doctors, lawyers, dentists, engineers and school teachers, waiting to hear what the speaker might have to say which would put them on the road to riches. Clergymen of every religion on earth were there, with the hope that they might gather from the message of the speaker some inspirational ideas they could pass on to the members of their congregations.
There were taxicab drivers, mechanics, bricklayers, merchants, barbers, and newsboys, representing every trade and every calling on earth, and many of them had come from distant places.
The noise died down and a silent hush spread over the great audience.
