While that attitude is proper and Wise we Stilt should keep in mind that wealth is not an end but a Means. We need it Only for the use we can make of it the real Standard of use is not one of Quantity but of Quality not of Money but of character. Some Day a sufficient organization balancing productive output and consumptive need will give us economic emancipation. But we have not yet perfected the formula. To blame the government or business for All present imperfections is like blaming Washington for lacking railroads or Lincoln for ignoring aviation. Meantime we must live and learn. If we have unemployment it must be remedied if we have destitution it must be relieved. But the great realities do not depend upon Prosperity. Getting a living is not the most important part of life. We can be just As Loyal to our country just As devoted to our Home just As faithful to our religion without great earthly possessions.
