Overview

Excerpt from Man's Duty to Man: A Study of Social Conditions, Their Causes, and How They May Be Improved, Including a Review of the Nature and Character of Democracy and the Dangers That Are Confronting It in Our Country

This book is intended to bring to the attention of the public the deplorable condition of the lower classes of our people, especially those who live in the slums, shacks, tenement houses, and congested and unsanitary portions of the great cities where dwell the victims of cheap labor, - the poor and dependent classes; to awaken a more lively and sympathetic regard for these unfortunates, and to suggest some better and more effective means of relieving their condition, in order to make them better citizens, self-supporting, self-respecting, and less of a burden upon the communities in which they live, and to render their state of existence less of a disgrace to a civilized nation.

To relate again the lamentable condition of the very poor and unfortunate is to retell a sad, sad story that has been told again and again, but one that should be retold still again and again until public officials, and others within whose power it is to act for their relief, realize the duty that rests upon them to remove this foul blot on our good name as a humanitarian people, and relieve the general public from an enormous burden that should not and need not be borne. The conditions that exist are as unnecessary and as inexcusable as they are disgraceful to those who allow them to continue.
