FLASHES FROM THE FLINT

By Victor Robinson.

THE history of progress is written in one word: disobedience. What is all this talk I hear about a Redeemer and a coming Messiah? The world has but one Savior, and his name is Freedom!

Authority is the dam which has blocked the river of civilization; it is the clog in the wheel of improvement, the barnacle on the ship of science, the dark cloud which obscures the dawn of day. Where God is king, the people are devils. The reformer in prison is more free than the conservative who imprisoned him, for the chains of superstition in a man's mind are more cruel than the fetters of iron on the convict's ankles.
