    Excerpt from The Lesson of the Hour: Lecture of Wendell Phillips, Delivered at Brooklyn, Tuesday Evening, November 1, 1859

    It seems to me the idea ofour civilization - under lying all American life - is, that we do not need any protector. We need no safeguard. Not only the inevitable, but the best, power this side of the ocean, is the unfettered average common sense of the masses. Institutions, as we are accustomed to call them, are but pasteboard, and intended to be against the thought of the street. Statutes are mere mile stones, telling how far yesterday's thought had trav elled; and the talk of the sidewalk to-day is the law of the land. Somewhat brie¿y stated, such is the idea of American civilization uncompromising faith - in the average selfishness, if you choose of all classes, neutralizing each other, and tending toward that fair play that Saxons love. It seems to me that, on all questions, we dread thought; We shrink behind something we acknowledge ourselves unequal to the sublime faith of our fathers and the exhibition of the last twenty years and of the present state of public afiairs is,that fimerieans dread to look their real position in the ace.
