Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Women and Men, chapter 29 (search)
gland, so far as I know, Thomas Wright-who calls himself The working Engineer, and names his book Our New masters --charges the difficulty to tie impossibility of enlisting the organizing mind on the side of co-operation. There is, he says, such a thing as a capitalist talent, and the existence of this is fatal to co-operation, because workmen themselves cannot be relied upon either to find out this talent or to trust it. The objection does not seem quite conclusive, when we remember that Carlyle and others have considered all republican government impracticable on the same ground — that human beings could not or would not of themselves select their ablest men to rule them.

While civilization improves men's and women's bodies on the whole-although it was once thought to impair them — it gives the brain a swifter development and makes that the source of power. It is now a rare thing for soldiers to fight hand to hand, even in the cavalry, to which Lanier belonged. The race is not to the swift nor the battie to the strong. The weakest hand may touch off the cannon whose ball shall overtake the swiftest runner, miles away. It is the virtue of gunpowder, as Carlyle has said, that it makes all men alike tall. There still remain among some of our troops those caps of imitation bear-skin which were once worn to intimidate a foe. The fierce head-dress of the drum-major is the reductio ad absurdum, or extreme instance, of this childish method, which still survives among the Chinese, and may be seen in Japanese pictures. In an old military text-book the Portuguese soldiers were ordered to attack their opponents with ferocious countenances. But civilizati
