CHERE NEVER WAS A TIME IN THE HISTORY OF MAN
WHEN THERE WA8 SO WIDE AN INTELLIGENCE, 80 GREAT
AND VIVID AN INTEREST IN THE THINGS OF THE MIND
A3 THERE IS TODAY.
Thero lias never been so broml a distribution of intelligence, and I
am euro that nevor eineo tho Eecond century in lionio has thero boon
SO BROAD A DISTRIBUTION OF liATMMXKSS. Indeed, of
all tho times in all tho history of mankind I think that tho present ago
bears tho closest rosemblanco of those days of tho Itomnn empire.
Thoy wero not yot tho days of dissolution, hut they wcro days of
decadence. And so is this.
And I do not seo why that should bo nnything to wonder at or ox
claim nguinst. Tho DKOAY OF OXK CIVILIZATION IS NOT
SUCH A TKRRIRLK THING. Even if it is followod by a period
of chaos it is tho way of lifo and development that ono civilization
should decay and go to pieces.
Certainly, however, this is NOT A STRKXUOUS AGE. This
is a eoft age. It is an age in which thero is a great deal of overwork, a
great deal of fntiguo and neurasthenia. Hut it is SOFT for all that.
