The Faith of a Liberal

by Edmund De S. Brunner 1938

YOU may call me a gradualist or a liberal. I am such because history shows that social change is in the main gradual, though its tempo varies. Even revolutions are years in preparation. They do not occur until they have sufficient support. It is this that gives education its great opportunity, that makes it count, that enables it to be an agency in social change, provided, of course, it measures up to the opportunity. This implies, of course, a program. Social evolution is not automatic. The liberal who is without a program is a label not a liberal.
