Excerpt from Harmony Vs; Discord: The Theory of Human Progress and the Solution of the Present Problem

This work is the outgrowth of a long-felt desire to do something towards dispelling the confusion of thought regarding political and social relations, which it is clear arises from the failure to grasp first principles. The original intention was only to place the theories enunciated by Henry George in "Progress and Poverty," in a condensed form. But in the course of a careful study of his theory of interest, which I had been unable to harmonize with first perceptions and logical deductions, I discovered its erroneous character. This led to a more independent investigation and closer study of his theories. I saw that the law of interest as he expressed it, not only does not agree with natural perceptions, but is erroneous, an incongruity in his philosophy and the molehill magnified to the size of a mountain that hides its real greatness and efficiency from many. And to his failure to perceive the true law of interest, is largely due his faulty conception of the reason for the unstable equilibrium of supply and demand, and the cause of commercial depressions.

But perceiving the indifference with which people have from disappointment come to view proposed reforms and the general belief that social advance or retrogression is entirely within the power of man to control, I was impressed with the possible hopelessness of any effort to better the condition of man. This led to a deeper study, and to the discovery that human progress has been one continual advance, and that the forces that compel advancement increase with advancement.
