20 Notre Dame L. 1 (1944-1945)
The advocates of a post-war world security organization are squarely up against the question of "sovereignty." Those who have specifically criticized the suggestion have done so for the reason that it does not go far enough to accomplish its purpose. They contend that the word "sovereign" should be lifted out of all such proposals for the reason that its inclusion will neutralize the effectiveness and destroy the continuity of the proposed association. If through the instrumentality of a treaty, or an executive agreement made pursuant to a joint Congressional resolution or otherwise, the United States government may suddenly take on the full "sovereign" qualities of other members of the international family then that result should be frankly and seriously considered in all our discussions of post war settlements.
