The  history of British democracy has not been easy. The basic principle must be that every citizen 
is entitled to hold their opinions and to express themselves in free speech. Any attempt to deny that 
free speech is an attack on democracy. Any counter expression under free speech is democracy in 
action. However, there inevitably comes a point where that freedom can be challenged by a vocal 
minority who are determined to ignore democracy and force the majority to their views. That has to 
be resisted with courage because a failure by the majority to enforce democracy kills democracy.

Of those who take a different view from the majority, some are highly principled and take a position 
where they themselves will take no action against their principles. There are also those who object 
because they value life and refuse to fight for their country with weapons, but are happy to place their 
own lives at risk by taking non-combatant roles, including working as ambulance drivers and medics 
in areas where they are very close to combat and at great personal risk. Democracy can celebrate such 
people because they are holding to their principles but accepting that the majority have very different 
views.

From that very small number of objectors, there is a large number of people who, from ignorance, or 
weakness, are prepared to accept all of the benefits of democracy but refuse to accept the 
responsibilities that go with the benefits. In their number are the shirkers and opportunists who are 
really only out for their own ends at cost to the majority.

Then there are those who actively seek to aid a hostile foreign power against their own country. 
Some will demonstrate and engage in street violence to attempt to subvert the majority. Others 
will actively become paid agents of the hostile foreign power. No democracy can afford to allow 
these traitors to enjoy their freedom and many will consider this a capital crime to end with execution.

The author has provided a balanced history of opposition to WWII. In a readable style he has looked 
at how these people lived under the slogan “I renounce war”. In support of the text there is a photo-
plate section of images.

Inevitably, whatever the motivation, the objectors play into the hands of the enemy, some by accident 
and some by intent. Any oppressive foreign power is only too eager to believe what it wants to believe. 
Hitler continued on the path to war because he thought the objectors in Britain and fascist supporters 
were an indication of deep weakness in British society that would ensure he could continue to flout 
international norms on his path to world domination. Those who felt their objections were moral ended 
up contributing to starting the war they claimed to renounce and gave cover to those who were keen to 
help the enemy. In 80+ years not a lot has changed as a new group of objectors refuse to accept a huge 
democratic vote and provide comfort to an enemy who has refused to negotiate because it believes 
Britain will unconditionally surrender. In the 1930s it was Fascism that was the enemy, today it is an 
undemocratic and unaccountable quazi nation in Brussels.
