Abstract:

This article is characteristic of many writings of a philosophical nature. The writer, as a result of his experiences and thinking, reaches certain conclusions. These he submits as assertions to the reader without permitting even a glimpse of the knowledge and reasoning behind them. It is very nice to write, for instance, "Private forest enterprise marching hand in hand with public ownership will have a stabilizing influence." The critical thinking reader (and I hope the JOURNAL readers do not blindly accept the printed word) will immediately ask, "What is this stabilizing influence found only in private ownership? How, when, and where is it applied?" They will look in vain for the answer and then, if in haste, will with praiseworthy caution reject the statement as not supported by evidence, or, if time permits, they will sit in judgment submitting and analyzing only their own available evidence without assistance from the author. Many a politician, too, will be envious of Caverhill's language in deploring the public burden on an "overtaxed people" and they will admire his calm demand further on in the article for an increase in public services along many lines. Suck services, of course, will have to be paid for and that will mean more taxes!--P. A. HERBERT, Associate Editor.
