The Next New City

Wherever men have gone seeking freedom they have carried with them the source of their own destruction—in five words: a place to worship freely. For that means a place to practice—preach, teach and regard as sacred, as necessary to human life—primacy of consciousness, superstition, wishful thinking. It is one thing to say that man, by his volitional nature, is always capable of choosing the irrational. It is quite another to say that an evil must be encouraged, brought along and given honorable consideration and treatment.
