mental nature we see at work in all modern communities.

and to publish what I believed to be true,
uncontrolled by any central authority.
- Arthur Keith

The main force used in the evolving world of humanity
has hitherto been applied in the form of war.
- Arthur Keith

Civilization never stands still; if in one country it is falling back,
in another it is changing, evolving,
becoming more complicated,
bringing fresh experience to body and mind,
breeding new desires, and exploiting Nature's cupboard for their satisfaction.
- Arthur Keith

My personal conviction is that science is concerned wholly with truth,
not with ethics.

Universalism as an ideal is as old as nay,

In a tribal organization, even in time of peace,

Tribal life comes automatically to an end when a primitive
people begins to live in a town or a city,
for sooner or later a tribal organization is found
to be incompatible with life in a city.
- Arthur Keith

There are the further difficulties of building a population
out of a diversity of races,
each at a different stage of cultural evolution,
some in need of restraint, many in need of protection;
everywhere a bewildering Babel of tongues.
- Arthur Keith

Nowhere is Universalism welcomed and encouraged by a people;
everywhere governments have forced and are forcing
Universalism upon unwilling and resistant subjects.

do not desire to discriminate between races,
but the distinctions implanted by Nature are too conspicuous
to escape the observation of our senses.
- Arthur Keith
