Joan's Lens

the world through my (camera) lens (and other notes)

When political systems decay it does not mean that man ceases to be a political animal; it merely means that man has discovered an instrument which more perfectly expresses his political needs and instincts. The death of an institution means more life, not less. An outworn creed means more truth, not less. Every death means a larger life.

—Clarence R. Skinner, The Social Implications of Universalism (1915)
