Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 1, No. 2. March 16, 1938

Mainly Morals

Mainly Morals.

"What are your ideas on 'the new morality?'" "Salient" asked Scrim.

"Personally, White I consider that tradition has every right to recognition for its good points. I feel that history will reveal the fact that very marked progress has been made by the younger and more modern thinkers on all subjects, morality included. A revolution in human affairs can be brought about either by the bloody steam-roller type of revolution, or by the intelligent direction Of open-minded students of human relations. The type of ideal that comes from the soap-box orator on the street corner who is disgruntled because the shoe pinches him particularly, is not valuable. But an impersonal ideal is invaluable, when intelligence and not the stomach is the basis of it."
