It may be doubted whether it is possible at all,

or at any rate as yet, at the present stage

of our control over the means of production, to set

up regulations that will eliminate want among the masses! It

may be asked where the number of superior, unswerving and

disinterested leaders are to come from who are to act

as educators of the future generations, and it may be

alarming to think of the enormous amount of coercion that

will inevitably be required before these intentions can be carried

out! But the grandeur of the plan cannot be disputed!
