Description

Excerpt from The Greek Theory of the State and the Nonconformist Conscience: A Socialistic Defence of Some Ancient Institutions The words Nonconformist Conscience have contracted a special meaning. They are not used indiscriminately about all subjects upon which Nonconformists happen to have conscientious con victions. We use the phrase when we are speak ing of the Nonconformists' demand for purity of life in public men, for municipal-regulation of music-halls, or for vigorous administration in the local government of London; but we seldom or never say that it is the Nonconformist Con science which demands the disestablishment and disendowment of the Church, although the majority of Nonconformists conscientiously believe that this measure is a strict requirement of justice. In fact, the use of the phrase has come to be confined to those subjects upon which the leading Non conformists of today have deserted the Indivi dualist doctrines of old-fashioned N onconformity, and have adopted views which are closely allied to Socialism.
