Who wrote these words?
“Oh you blind leaders who seek to convert the world by labored disputations. Step out of the way or the world must fling you aside. GIVE US THE YOUNG. GIVE US THE YOUNG and we will create a new mind and a new earth in a single generation.”
Who claims the young? tells the leaders of the world to step aside? aims to create a new mind? a new earth?
Benjamin Kidd, an English sociologist who died in 1916, wrote the above lines. He was but one of the group of writers, teachers, theologians, philosophers, economists, and
sociologists who believe the world is theirs. They claim the young because the young can be easily trained. The emotions of the young can be controlled and behavior managed to fit the group’s desires. Other, equally bold statements of intentions are quoted throughout this book.
