Excerpt from England's Ideal: And Other Papers on Social Subjects

"Behold the hire of the laborers, ... which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them ... are entered into the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth."

While it seems to be admitted now on all hands that the social condition of this country is about as bad as it can be, and while many schemes, more or less philanthropic or revolutionary, are proposed for its regeneration, it just occurs to me to bring forward, by way of balance, the importance of personal actions and ideals. For as the nation is composed of individuals, so the forces which move the individual - the motives, the ideals, which he has in his mind - are, it seems to me, the main factors in any nation's progress, and the things which ultimately decide the direction of its movement.

At the bottom, and behind all the elaborations of economic science, theories of social progress, the changing forms of production, and class warfare, lies to-day the fact that the old ideals of society have become corrupt, and that this corruption has resulted in dishonesty of life. It is this dishonesty of personal life which is becoming the occasion of a new class-war, from whose bloody parturition struggle will arise a new ideal - destined to sway human society for many a thousand years, and to give shape to the forms of its industrial, scientific, and artistic life.
