e Scandinavian countries and the great German Empire have sent brawn and muscle and wit and art to uncover our resources, to quicken our industries, to warm the heart and liberalize the thinking of Puritan ism. Skepticism has been obliged to recede before the demonstra tion that each new, great migration has brought a new element of strength and a new measure of completeness to the equipment of the nation. Pur'itanism - call it by what distinguishing name you will - was doubtless the most sublime force which ever developed among men for giving liberty and aiding learning. It was the honest, harsh, necessary instrument which alone could break out the roads over which democracy might advance. It gave birth to the British nation and to English freedom; it gave birth to the American nation and to a new measure of English freedom in America. But it must no longer be denied that the factors which have come into the life of the American nation since the high noon of the nineteenth century, have, through the mixing, and through what we have been jointly doing, produced a newer nation, with feeling and outlook, and power and purpose, which were beyond the ken of Puritanism.Here we are, eighty millions of people. We are doing our own thinking. We are having our own will. But our thinking, when of general concern, is logical; our will, before it becomes the nation's will, is a disciplined will, guided by reason, without malice and without fear, determined, yet tempered by goodness and justice and mercy.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
