He argues that he only alternative to legislation hich is designed for the good of ons ass or another of tho State Is tbe police theory" of government. Tbls as the popular theory In Britain In he early part of the nineteenth ceu- ury. H was based on popular dea of the freedom of the Individual. hat he requires Is .-freedom, and the province of the government Is to be sort of guardian ot tho peace while he citizens compete with one another. Thus il was believed that the greatesl good of the greatest number would be promoted. Now, when cue brings the police theory ot government, says iMr, Mac- mlllan, to the of experiment he discovers at once that it does not pro- mote the general weal.
