4 The assumption of the headship of the male is curiously involved in the Putneyite affirmation ‘that there is no intrinsic difference between property in persons and property in things; and that the same spirit which abolished exclusiveness in regard to money, would abolish, if circumstances allowed full scope to it, exclusiveness in regard to women and children. Paul expressly places property in women and property in goods in the same category, and speaks of them together, as ready to be abolished by the advent of the Kingdom of Heaven’ (Noyes's “American Socialisms,” p. 625; and cf. ante, 2.289).
