These doctrines, adopted widely by enlightened people a century ago on the appearance of Pestalozzi's Evening Hour of a lyermii (1780) and his Leona/rd cmd Ger h'ude (17 81 have received a new emphasis in more recent times from the inevitable trend of all civilization toward democracy and local self-government. If the weakling is to have a vote, he will prove a negative pow er in society. He will furnish a constituency for the demagogue, and corruption in politics will ever prevail in proportion to the number of illiterate, immoral, and un thrifty people that exist in the state.
