What the New Century May Bring Forth
(S592a: 1900)

Editor Charles H. Smith's Note: One of several short letters to the Editor printed under this title on page 30 of The Salt Lake Herald (Utah) issue of 30 December 1900. To link directly to this page, connect with: http://people.wku.edu/charles.smith/wallace/S592A.htm

Alfred R. Wallace, Sociologist:

     Prejudices lurk e'en in the brightest minds and against the ideal socialist's hope there seems to be for the present an impassable barrier raised. But against the equality of opportunity there seems to be far less prejudice, since it really causes a greater intensity of composition, giving all, as it does, an equal equipment both mental and material. Under such a just system society will be sure to advance through the influence of the greatest minds. The flowers of the human mind will not then, as now, so often is the case, "be born to blush unseen and waste their fragrance on the desert air."
