“How Likely Is It?” and “That’s inconvenient” are Insufficient Arguments

“We never make much account of objections which merely respect the actual state of the world at this moment, but which admit the general expediency and permanent excellence of the project. What is the best must be the true; and what is true—that is, what is at bottom fit and agreeable to the constitution of man—must at last prevail over all obstruction and opposition. There is no good now enjoyed by society that was not at once as problematical and visionary as this. It is the tendency of the True interest of man to become his desire and steadfast aim. “

— from Emerson’s “War”
