What I Think of The Social Frontier

by Milo F. Mc Donald - 1939

At least once a year this journal follows the policy of asking some severe critic of its position to state the reasons for his opposition in these columns. This is not intended as a mere gesture of tolerance, but as an earnest effort to re-examine our objectives and procedures with an eye to new emphasis and improved understanding of the responses of "hostile forces" to our endeavors. Cultural change is not just a matter of action—it also involves reaction, particularly on the part of those who feel that some real or imaginary values are threatened by our proposals. Educational benefit, we hope, accrues to both ourselves and to our antagonists by this process. Simpler factual misinterpretations thus often disappear; whether the conflict that rests upon incompatible loyalties is also resolvable in this manner is uncertain, but the effort ought to be made.
