“A society which is mobile, which is full of channels for the distribution of a change occurring anywhere, must see to it that its members are educated to personal initiative and adaptability.
Otherwise, they will be overwhelmed by the changes in which they are caught and whose significance or connections they do not perceive.” (1916)
