Excerpt from Science, Vol. 8: An Illustrated Journal; July-December, 1886

Professor Newcomb closes his article with the statement of an objection against state interven tion, based on the observation that our congress men, and I suppose our rulers in general, are not a very wise body of men, and presumably do not know better than others what is for our good. This shows, it seems to me, a total misapprehen sion of the question involved. Nobody wants to intrust certain things to the government because the government is very wise and very good. No body desires paternal government. Even the ex treme socialist does not desire it. What he wishes, and believes practicable, is a fraternal common wealth. The question involved is not, Shall we let wiser and better people than we attend to our affairs for us? But Shall certain functions be performed by cc-operative methods, or by in dividual methods for the state is only a certain kind of cc-operative institution. Then, if we decide on cc-operative methods, shall we adopt voluntary cc-operation, possibly that of a corpora tion. Or shall we adopt the compulsory cc-opera tion of the state?
