 This superstition [ that loving in all cases is not the best rule ] has caused ... and still causes much blood to flow, and much horrible suffering. The worst of it is that this superstition has always pre vented and still prevents social betterment that answers to the degree of the development of the human conscience. It prevents true progress, be cause men spend their entire efforts in concerning themselves with others, thereby neglecting their own moral regeneration, which alone can con tribute to the regeneration of the world in general. In fact, social life advances, and advances neces- sarily towards the eternal ideal of perfection, thanks to the progress of individuals in the endless path of perfection.
