The knowledge of anything, since all things have causes, is not acquired or complete unless it is known by its causes.
All outward forms of religion are almost useless, and are the causes of endless strife. Believe there is a great power silently working all things for good, behave yourself and never mind the rest.
There is nothing to fear except the persistent refusal to find out the truth, the persistent refusal to analyze the causes of happenings.
Sociologists well understand that chaos at home causes violent behavior, educational failure and social alienation among children. Yet, many of us in America stay far, far away from this topic. That in itself is a national scandal. Bad parenting is gravely harming this nation.
