CONCLUDING REMARKS

woman, indeed, no more believes in democracy in the nation than she 

believes in democracy at her own fireside; she knows that there must 

be a class to order and a class to obey, and that the two can never 

coalesce. Nor is she susceptible to the stock sentimentalities upon 

which the whole democratic process is based. This was shown very 

dramatically in the United States at the national election of 1920, 

in which the late Woodrow Wilson was brought down to colossal and 

ignominious defeat--the first general election in which all American 

women could vote. All the sentimentality of the situation was on the 

side of Wilson, and yet fully three-fourths of the newly-enfranchised 

women voters voted against him. He is, despite his talents for 

deception, a poor popular psychologist, and so he made an inept effort 

to fetch the girls by tear-squeezing: every connoisseur will remember 

his bathos about breaking the heart of the world. Well, very few women 

believe in broken hearts, and the cause is not far to seek: practically 

every woman above the age of twenty-five has a broken heart. That is 

to say, she has been vastly disappointed, either by failing to nab some 

pretty fellow that her heart was set on, or, worse, by actually nabbing 

him, and then discovering him to be a bounder or an imbecile, or both. 

Thus walking the world with broken hearts, women know that the injury is 

not serious. When he pulled out the Vox angelica stop and began sobbing 

and snuffling and blowing his nose tragically, the learned doctor simply 

drove all the women voters into the arms of the Hon. Warren Gamaliel 

Harding, who was too stupid to invent any issues at all, but simply took 

negative advantage of the distrust aroused by his opponent. 

 

Once the women of Christendom become at ease in the use of the ballot, 

and get rid of the preposterous harridans who got it for them and 

who now seek to tell them what to do with it, they will proceed to 

a scotching of many of the sentimentalities which currently corrupt 

politics. For one thing, I believe that they will initiate measures 

against democracy--the worst evil of the present-day world. When they 

come to the matter, they will certainly not ordain the extension of the 

suffrage to children, criminals and the insane in brief, to those ever 

more inflammable and knavish than the male hinds who have enjoyed it for 

so long; they will try to bring about its restriction, bit by bit, to
