What Would Jesus Do?
BY DR. A. W. VINCHNT
(Continued from last week.)
, Business life to-day is a battle of
wits against wits, energies directed
not against nature to make her
yield more abundantly of her sub
stance, but against fellow-men to
secure that which they have al
ready brought forth. A battle as
wasteful of energies, as cruel and
inconsiderate, and more far-reach
ing in its ellccts than any savage
battle of muscle against muscle.
Using in these days the sheer force
of accumulated capital, which is
more brutal than brute force, for
the brute is satisfied when itu maw
But this battle we are told must
continue, and for what? As an
incentive, forsooth 1 To stimulate
our energies. What sort of energies
To allow the savage to reap n re
ward for overpowering an enemy
stimulates not his productive ciicr
gics but his fighting energies. The
mere producer is robbed and de
spised. To allow a man to reap
reward for speculative business
gambling is nu incentive" to develop
only speculative gambling instincts
The mere producer is still despised
and robbed, only far more system
ntically by this method
What creator incentive to usefu
effort, physical or mental, can be
given than to guarantee to each his
full product, that is, n full snare
with his fellows of their joint pro
duct? Ifor production Is no longer
by individual but by joint cllort,
Once provide that he may by
shrewdness, scheming and specula
tivc manipulations obtain more than
a just share, part of what others
produce, and that this once ob
tallied by whatever means, may be
used ns capital to utterly control
the labor of others, and you have
not only destroyed the guarantee,
destroyed the incentive for useful
production, but have given the
greatest possible incentive to scliem
lug, trickery and oppression; aye
to fitcnlini'. murder, Ijrmcrv am
corruption of a 'thousand different
forms. An incentive, Ah God. how
great I the present age bears
Individual self-interest is never
the best incentive to effort. It
takes the enthusiasm of numbers
hnvlng n joint interest to bring forth
the best effort. A man will do far
more for "our side," "our college,'
"our football team," or "ourcoun
try," than for merely individual
Docs the aoldicr who fights side
by side with his comrades fight less
valiantly because he knows that
his success is their success? Is it
necessary to allow each soldier to
fight Independently and keep al
the loot he can gain in order to
furnish lilin a necessary Incentive?
But to carry out the' auulogy to our
present day business life he must
also fight his comrades and take
from them if jmssible any loot they
may have gained. And this is In
Tlic soldier oi to-day is not en
tirely unselfish, but he Is sufficiently
enlightened to perceive that in
such individualism there is no sue
cess worthy the name of any. He
might overpower the weaker ones
mid hold authority over them for u
time, but he cannot rise from the
depths of savagery until they cease
lighting each other and hold that
physical force In a common fund for
the protection ot each. I hen there
is developed within his breast a
feeling of patriotism, of comrnd
ship, of brotherhood. An Incentive
far ikcer, more intense, and more
effective than any selfish motive
within the savage breast. He will
flic willingly and proudly for his
comrades, for his country.
Oh, that we might, in the gteat
battle of life, the battle against the
elements, fight as a great united
army and so develop something
nkln to that feeling of comrndshlp,
that patriotism I Now we struggle
among ourselves, the strong main
tabling a position of safety In the
rcur, forcing the weak into the
front ranks to meet the grim cue
mles, Hunger and Cold, to whom
full many a one falls a victim, And
yet these enemies were so easily
conquered did each but do his
share and meet them with dlcipllue
and a united front.
Oh, barbarous Christian civilian
tion, not to perceive that to over
power a brother man by means of
mental superiority, is the same in
principle, the same in effect, us to
overpower him by means of physi
cul superiority; not to perceive that
lucntul competition for the essen
tials of life make true Christianity
as impossible as does physical com
petition! Oh, honorably may the Christian
kill where the rule is kill or be
killed; by honorable methods may
he reduce his brother man to pov
erty, where the rule is impoverish
or be impoverished 1 But what of
hint who makes no effort or even
opposes any efforts to change that
rule; who would preach love and
unselfishness and honorable meth
ods of killing each other to savages,
but oppose the organization of their
political life from individualism up
to Democracy; who preaches righte
ous aud peace and honorable meth
ods of getting something for noth
ing In business, aud opposes that
satue organization of business affairs
from individualism up to Democ
racy? The mere preaching of Christian
principles, without the teachiug oi
