I WAS JUST THINKING II...

"No doubt a lot of nonsense has been talked about the inalienable right of the individual, and a great deal that was mere vague sentiment and pleasing speculation has been put forward as fundamental principle." --Woodrow Wilson

"We must demand that the individual shall be willing to lose the sense of personal achievement, and shall be content to realize his activity only in connection to the activity of the many. --Jane Addams, social activist, community organizer in Chicago

Now men are free, but it is often the freedom of grains of sand that are whirled up in a cloud and dropped in a heap, but neither cloud nor sand-heap have any coherence. New forms of association must be created. Our disorganized competitive life must pass into an organic cooperative life. --Walter Rauschenbush, Social Gospel activist, 1896

Individualism is tyranny.--Walter Rauschenbush

I got it for Mr. Z for a Christmas present.

Quite some quotes there.......give me individualism every time.

I just read your profile to Mr. Z....very impressed. I prefaced it with "This is the type of great people I blog with". No kidding. I feel the same guilt. Never participated in the junk of the sixties, but our generation SURE did mess things up.

actually, I'm going to blog on something I heard just yesterday that appplies to that..come by! happy weekend, L&0

CH,
Thanks for the visit. I think you'll find the book very enlightening and kind of scary. Happy reading and keep the lights on while you read the book.

Z,
I have commented on your blog. The sixties...don't get me started. Oh, you did.
