9781331209287: Clear Thinking or an Englishman's Creed (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Clear Thinking or an Englishman's Creed

Of the making of many books we know there is no end, and indeed a perusal of the lists of "to-day's books" in the columns of our newspapers suggests that the prospective author owes not merely an apology - more or less sincere - by way of a preface, but such an ordered defence as might convince a Grand Jury of critics that at least he had a case to take before the court of Public Favour. Can one thus justify the production of a book which, while purporting to deal with some great questions historical and political, practical and philosophical - yet claims neither to treat exhaustively nor with acknowledged authority? As to originality, if the faithful reproduction of the author's thoughts and opinions constitute originality then "original" these essays are, yet the author will not quarrel with a critic who finds that some of these opinions are second-hand or even trite.

The object of this book is, firstly, to enforce the lesson of the need of clear thought, and to illustrate this lesson by the discussion of various questions; secondly, to show that the corollary of clear thought is the realisation of the public duty and individual profit of Imperial Patriotism.
