Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

Walter Bagehot

“In certain respects each born generation is not like the last born; and in certain other respects it is like the last. But the peculiarity of arrested civilisation is to kill out varieties at birth almost; that is, in early childhood, and before they can develop. The fixed custom which public opinion alone tolerates is imposed on all minds, whether it suits them or not.”


Walter Bagehot, Physics and Politics (1872).
