The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 20



Conscience is a faculty of the mind which requires directing and cultivating as do all our other faculties, for its healthy and vigorous action it depends not upon one organ or group of organs of the brain but upon the concentrated power and free operation of all our higher faculties, we may be so misdirected as to cause us to have conscientious scruples at variance with the most fundamental laws of our being. Conscience can only be properly directed, when our law of what is right and proper is fully known and practised, when this takes place external law in all human society may perish from the earth. Man will have become a law unto himself.
