Some of us learned in a school of philosophy which taught that all was for the common good and nothing for oneself and have never, in any case, regarded the pursuit of happiness as anything other than an aberration of the human spirit.
More John Grierson quotes :
My personal view is that such total planning by the state is an absolute good and not simply a relative good... I do not myself think of the attitude I take as deriving from Marx - though this undoubtedly will be suggested - but from Fichte and Hegel.John Grierson
The very effect of the education they were given... was to make men think and, thinking, they became less and less satisfied with the miserable pays they received.John Grierson
