Excerpt from Crime and Education: The Duty of the State Therein

Of the rich are hardened, so that they lose sight Of God: the capacity of the poor is withdrawn, so that they descend into the condition of the irrational brute. In the rich, love is lost in a refined sensuality: in the poor, contentment vanishes in a dogged indifference. Religion, therefore, stands aloof. She is powerless; and, while she is full of vigour and blessing to those who partake Of neither riches nor poverty, and has therein some little spot to set her foot on, she struggles with the two diverging extremes in vain. She becomes more and more a stranger to them both and the people, as tending in the mass towards one or other of them, year by year lose sight of her. Add, moreover, this peculiarity, that the population of the poor increases, as is evident from the ratio of numbers, in a much more rapid degree than that of the rich; so that year by year the proportion between the rich and poor extends, not only in disparity of sentiment, but simultaneously in extent of numbers; not only, On the part of the poor, in the ignorance and misery which beset them, and the sense of injustice under which they labour, and the hatred which they cherish towards those who, in their Opinion, are their oppressors; but also in the area over which such ignorance, and sense Of injustice, and hatred, is ex panded. And what must be the issue? Like the spark long smouldering in heaps of rubbish, which some accidental gust of wind blows into a ?ame, - so this deep feeling of wrong gaining power, and the poor by bodily necessities becoming reckless Of consequences, having no check in Obedience to the laws, God being not recognized, religion untaught, and Obedience to man depending only on brute force,-immediately that such brute force is on their own side, and they become sensible Of it, they burst forth, and are beyond control. Hence a revolution; that is to say, according to the meaning Of the word, an upsetting of the existing system of things - laws subverted, order destroyed, pro perty passing from hand to hand, as mere power masters it, human life sacrificed in the struggles of the ambitions to gain the highest places of such power; and the land, reeking with blood and slaughter, calling for the vengeance of God upon the sins of man.
