       the majority. . . . The second way of life is based upon the will of a

       must be the policy of the United States to support free peoples who are
       resisting attempted subjugation [conquest] by armed minorities or by
       outside pressures. I believe that we must assist free peoples to work out
       their own destinies in their own way.”
