System of Economical Contradictions; or, the Philosophy of Misery

Descrizione dell’editore

From the moral and intellectual point of view, society, or the collective man, is especially distinguished from the individual by spontaneity of action—in other words, instinct. While the individual obeys, or imagines he obeys, only those motives of which he is fully conscious, and upon which he can at will decline or consent to act; while, in a word, he thinks himself free, and all the freer when he knows that he is possessed of keener reasoning faculties and larger information—society is governed by impulses which, at first blush, exhibit no deliberation and design, but which gradually seem to be directed by a superior power, existing outside of society, and pushing it with irresistible might toward an unknown goal.
