A Quote about Income Equality...from 1908

by Nomad

Income Inequality Crosby

The book, Labor and Neighbor: An Appeal to First Principles, was publish in 1908, one year following the untimely death of its author, Ernest Crosby.

It was said of Crosby:
To some men their ideals are realities, and the author of this book was conspicuously one of these. His ideals were not dreamy ruminations for drawing- room chat or club-house banter. They were not intellectual playthings for leisure hours when the serious work of life is suspended. They were in no wise secondary. His ideals were to him the primary object of his life, its beginning and its end, its form and its substance.
Not a bad epitaph for any progressive.
