Benton Harbor Herald Palladium (Newspaper) - October 17, 1976, Benton Harbor, Michigan Eric Hoffer has been a Longshoreman migratory Field labourer and Gold Miner. His books include a the ordeal of Quot the temper of our time and a reflection on the human its magic is affecting americans performance and style in every Field. Will we need the tribal magic of charismatic leaders and Medicine men to get things done in peacetime and in War no matter How High the wages and How generous the fringe benefits the feeling persists that All a Workingman can get out of his Job is a living and he is in it for life. The Prospect before him is an endless daily grind an endless deadening routine which so bruises body and mind that retirement at 65 Means a Mere fading out. Revulsion from work can be counteracted by offering the Workingman a tangible and relatively immediate goal. Assuming that a year has 240 working Days of six hours each then 20 years of work�?4,800 Days should qualify a worker for a pension. A Day in the mine or on the Assembly line should count double and so should overtime work. Under such an arrangement a youth who started working at 18 would have counting overtime a fair Chance of retiring at 35 or so. If he becomes a Miner or works on the Assembly line he could retire sooner. Moreover a six hour workday might make it possible for Many to get an education while they Are working. Two hours of Book learning a Day should give a Workingman a College education by the time he retires. Compassion in the Alchemy of Many a soul almost All Noble attributes courage Honor love Hope Faith duty loyalty can be transmuted into ruthlessness. Compassion alone stands apart from the continuous traffic Between Good and evil proceeding within us. Compassion is the Antitoxin of the soul where there is compassion even the most poisonous impulses remain relatively harmless. Thus the survival of the species May Well depend on the ability to Foster a boundless capacity for compassion. Compassion seems to have its roots in the family. We think of those we love As easily bruised and our love is shot through with imaginings of the hurts lying in wait for them. A Loving wife cannot help imagining the wounds which a Days participation in the rat race May inflict on her husband and he in turn senses the fears bom of unavoidable physical decline which prey on his wife a mind. Their impulse is to protect console and reassure each other. Parents overflow with comp cission As they see their children go out into a strange cold world. It is conceivable that the present weakening of the family May allow compassion to leak into wider circles. So too the creation of family ties Between strangers by Esprit de corps should Aid the spread of compassion. But the question is whether we can make people compassionate by education. It amazes family weekly october 17,--976 is me that Well educated people Are not More compassionate than the uneducated. The reverse seems to be True. When Gandhi was asked what worried him most he replied a the hardness of heart of the the enormities of the 20th Century were committed by people who were better educated than the average and who Felt competent to instruct and guide the ignorant.
