Active Individuality

From the January 1973 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Not long ago the London Times published a challenging article by John Sparrow, Warden of Kings College, Oxford, in which he opposed the current trend toward uniformity, the apparent apathy and lack of incentive, the prevalent desire to "opt out," and stressed the world's need for men of character and genius who would endeavor to succeed and progress. The Times (London), January 23, 1971 One of the two photographs accompanying the article was of innumerable young people basking motionless in the sun; the other was of the same scene, but the baskers were iguanas (lizards).
