      My father was a Loyola graduate, Class of 1947. I have a very yellowed and very worn copy of the Maroon dated April 29, 1943. It has very interesting articles about Loyola students and graduates going off to war, plus notes from these soldiers to the Maroon. There is also a list of these students and graduates in the issue.

      Would Loyola or The Maroon have any interest in this edition?

        Hi Melanie! It’s great to hear that you still have a copy of the Maroon from 1943! We recommend that you keep the copy as Loyola has both digital and print copies of our news publication dating back to 1923. Thanks for sharing, however!

      President Trump’s address to the United Nations on Tuesday put forth a disturbing vision for world order—one premised on the self-interest of “powerful sovereign nations.” These words, stated the premier global forum for multilateral diplomacy, offer us a glimpse back into a not-so-distant past, a pre-United Nations era when supreme sovereignty reigned. For examples, we need only look to Hitler’s Germany, Mussolini’s Italy, or Franco’s Spain as graphic reminders of the havoc wreaked by a nationalistic state-centric mindset.
      The President began his address by paying lip service to the postwar collective security framework created by the United Nations, and then proceeded to undermine that framework, threatening the slaughter of 25 million people in North Korea, a clear violation of the United Nations Charter.
      The United Nations was born out of the ashes of World War II. It has helped to resolve numerous world conflicts, often through actions of the Security Council, of which the United States is a permanent member. The Security Council is the organ with primary responsibility under the U.N. Charter for the maintenance of collective peace and security for all nations. Its very existence is due to the failure of individual sovereign states to prevent catastrophic global war.
      It is a much-needed forum for resolving other pressing global problems as well, including climate change—not mentioned by Mr. Trump. Abandonment of the U.N. and the multi-state institutional framework would be a complete repudiation of longstanding U.S. policy, international law, and the human rights agenda. Worse, it could lead to the unthinkable: a third world war with nuclear weapons in play. This time, we would not have a second chance; a nuclear war would ensure that neither enemies nor allies are left standing to rebuild a world based on inter-state collaboration.
