Description

Excerpt from The Care of Dependent, Neglected and Wayward Children: Being a Report of the Second Section of the International Congress of Charities, Correction and Philanthropy, Chicago, June, 1893 On the other hand we think it is always excessively dangerous to accustom a community to look up to the state for everything. We think that the nation in which a state does everything is a nation that is soon bound to fall down, because individual energy is bound to become extinct. When people always look up to a superior or ism to do everything which they ought to do themselves, then I ose people become unfit to govern themselves in a very Short time. Therefore we now seem to have taken a course between those two extremes. The state gives help to all those charitable societies which work under the control of the state. We hope, therefore, by allowing the state system to be run in competition with the private system, that out of the great emulation which shall arise we shall derive a great benefit.
