civilization

A Quote by Arnold W. Craft on civilization, fanaticism, improvement, liberty, life, people, progress, sacrifice, suffering, talent, and world

Unless man in the midst of all his modernism finds a middle ground upon which to adjust his differences, there can be no mutual progress, human liberty is sacrificed and talent and freewill suffer. Improvement of the standards of living of the whole people is paramount, if civilization is to escape world fanaticism.
