When one is born into the world naked, with no place' Um a'
provided in advance for shelter ami no provision for food,
it is only natural for such a person to become a reformer.
He questions the right of the more fortunate to be born
to downy cradles or frescoed ceilings. He is earnestly
bent on an equal distribution of the good things of the
more fortunate or the better born.
On the other hand, he who is born rich or attains to
tiches.soon learns that all the gorgeous creatures in their
fine houses and automobiles, silks and laces, diamonds and
furs, are chasing in the same race with himself after the
unattainable. The real aristocracy, like the foot of the
rainbow, vanishes as he approaches. He sees the gilded
crowd. The gilded crowd sees the old families. The old
families have in view the aristocracy of Europe, which
permits mere wealth to enter, without becoming part of,
its magic circle
He all this as it may, half the crime and most of the
misery from which humanity suffers come from a social
system that floats like an iceberg, with three-fourths of
it under water. We call it the security (tf human rights
and the culture of enterprise, when it is only the gospel
of greed and vanity.
There are two phases of life unfavorable to peace and
comfort the one is adversity, the other prosperity.
It is hard to tell in which a man is the more offensive.
When prosperous he patronizes; when evil trouble falls
upon him he whines and is a horrible bore. When he is
down his friends wish him up on their own account: when
