SIR,—Mr. Bamber Gascoigne takes nearly three pages of your issue

in an effort to prove that MRA is naive. But if he thinks this, why take up so much time and effort to say so? The simple truth is that whatever he put down on paper, he knows that MRA is a mighty force at work in the world today and that ordinary people in their thousands are respond- ing to it as the one real positive alternative to the drift, chaos and cynicism that surround us. Mr. Gascoigne's few buckets of cold water will not dampen the fire that burns in the hearts of the men and women from every continent who are com- mitted to bringing this answering ideology to their nations and the world.
