The Atlantic Monthly, 1907, Vol. 100 : A Magazine of Literature, Science, Art, and Politics (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Atlantic Monthly, 1907, Vol. 100: A Magazine of Literature, Science, Art, and Politics And even of the drama and of litera ture and of art it is the sensational and the stimulating that attract the crowds. Crowds are always impulsive, masses are moved by nerve propulsion rather than by logic. And a government by crowds is a government by the impulses, by the convictions, by the predilections of the crowds. From the point of view of good govern ment, this is unfortunate. Sanity and sensationalism cannot dwell together in the same mind; emotional thrills do not lead to calm reﬂection, nor can impulse be the forerunner of reason.
