menIt is unbecoming for young men to utter maxims. Aristotle Prejudices are so to speak the mechanical instincts of men: through their prejudices they do without any effort many things they would find too difficult to think through to the point of resolving to do them. In a free society the state does not administer the affairs of men. It administers justice among men who conduct their own affairs. Men don’t and can’t live by exchanging articles, but by producing them. They don’t live by trade, but by work. Give up that foolish and vain title of Trades Unions and take that of laborers Unions. No man has any natural authority over his fellow men. The most positive men are the most credulous. The root of all superstition is that men observe when a thing hits, but not when it misses. The same principles which at first view lead to skepticism, pursued to a certain point, bring men back to common sense. As long as man continues to be the ruthless destroyer of lower living beings he will never know health or peace. For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. I believe there is complete equality between men and women. And I believe those passages in the New Testament, not by Jesus, but by Paul, that say women should not adorn themselves, they should always wear hats or color their hair in church – things like that – I think they are signs of the times and should not apply to modern-day life.
