Excerpt from The Real Wealth of Nations: Or a New Civilization, and Its Economic Foundations

A science is governed by immutable laws, independent of man's opinion, in war or peace, in rain or shine, among savages or civilized people, and the breakage of such natural laws must entail retrogression or degradation.

The death and torture of millions in the War demand the truth, for had the permanency of nations, their real wealth and inviolate and clearly-defined rights, been recognized, the spoliation of one by another would have been impossible, and even a people trained to robbery would not have dared to flout civilization and humanity.

The earth is a beautiful place, but what a mass of so-called civilized men lead unbeautiful lives! While the animals have less capacity for enjoyment, at least they do not worsen the conditions provided for them by a bountiful Nature, whereas it is frequently urged as an argument against reform that man is so satisfied with degrading surroundings which are not those of Nature that he would have to be moved from them by force. Can man after all be so wicked or so far below the animals in perception that, with his priceless gift of reason, he should build himself horrible habitations and carry ugliness into the country rather than bring the beauty of the latter into the towns? If civilization and industrialism necessitate their present setting, they must be a curse and not a blessing.
