Today’s quote comes from Robert Coram:
…it is here where wealthy and dignified mortals roll along the streets in all the parade and trappings of royalty, while the lower class are not half so well fed as the horses of the former. It is this cruel inequality which has given rise to the epithets of nobility, vulgur, mob, canaille, etc. and the degrading but common observation — Man differs more from man, than man from beast — The difference is purely artificial. Thus do men create an artificial inequality among themselves and then cry out that it is natural.
Interesting that some arguments and discussions continue along the same lines, isn’t it? That cause and effect and all the related in betweens and good or ill for society as a whole were questions at our founding. And continue to be so to this day.
What say you?
