Excerpt from Social Administration Including the Poor Laws
IT is a good thing for the student, the teacher, or the thinker, whatever the subject, to recognize its highest ideal to approach it with a fullness of purpose, and with the hope that the time devoted to the furtherance of knowledge, from whatever stand point, may be spent to the advantage of the individual, and to the betterment of his fellow man. There is no topic before the public which has received so much attention as that of the Poor Laws, and there is no subject which deserves to be, and should be, more carefully studied by the average citizen. Yet, it may be asked, to what extent does the knowledge of the man in the street extend beyond the fact that he pays either directly, or through his landlord, a yearly sum for the maintenance of his poorer brethren For what purpose, exactly, this money goes he does not know, neither has he the disposition to inquire until the awakening comes, when, through an occasional scandal, he recognizes that in him, at any rate, the State and the parish has lost the citizen who, by his wilful blindness, has done much to aid and abet a corrupt and unscrupulous management. To such, and there are many, this work will be directed, in the hope that at its completion the dormant interests may have been revived to renewed activity, and that those who may have perused its pages will have received an impetus to inquire further into one of the most pressing social problems of the present, as of the past, generations.
