Sucli ideas, which bring great masses of men, the repositories of ultimate political power, under the leadership of charlatans and demagogues, arc fraught with danger; but they cannot be successfully combattwl . until political economy shall give yonie answer to the great question which shall be consistent with all her teachings, and which shall, commend itself to the perceptions ol the great masses of men." The above wtu written more than 60 years ago, during the great depression which came with the subsidence of the inflation of the years immediately following tlio Civil War. It was not written by a hard-lwiled defender of social and economic injustice. it is a paragraph from Henry George's introduction to "Progress and Poverty," the book in which he ijt- itempted to show the way to an ccpn- .j'dhiic order in which poverty would bo unknown to those able and willing to work. ,, 'It is u, paragraph .worth, reprinting because it has lost none of its truth in the yews s,ince it was written. The distress of millions is today, as never before, the food on which "charlatans and demagogues" grow strong. And let it be said that while the theories of the demagogues are as illogical as ever, and . their ideas as dangerous, the. wrongs against which they cry outj-ure real. We have little reason to complain against those who follow the fraudulent and dangerous ideas of the demagogues as long as \ve arc unwilling, to devote such effort and make such sacrifices as may be necessary to provide right answers to problems which cannot go unanswered. ' In yesterday's St. Louis Post- Dispatch a lengthy article by Charles G. Uoss, Washington correspondent, presented figures to show that even with a return to the "prosperity" »f 1929 our unemployment problem would not be solved. There seems to be no reason to doubt the truth of that, for even in 19'29 there was considerable unemployment, and since that time thore has boon an increase Ijolh in number of available workers and in productive efficiency. That .should furnish a key to the major problem we must fare. For .-urely there is .something fundamentally wrong when unemployment ap^uar.-; unavoidable even though there an: almost unlimited human needs and desires to be filled and almost unlimited natural resources with which to lill them. Common .-uise tells us that the remedy i.s not in class warfare or a return to primitive handicraft methods, both of which arc destructive of productive-ability, in [he printing of more money, which adds, nothing to the store of wealth, or in a public dole or governmental employment, which are null-productive. l!ul if we are to answer Ibe demagogues who demand tluise Ihings in the uumi's of suffering millions we must provide something better. 7 he Longer Lije.
