Pleasures that cannot please
Wealth in societies as now constituted does not tend to get into the hands ofthe thrifty or the capable, but actually tends to get into the hands of wastrels and imbeciles. And it proves that the wealthy class of to-day is qute asignorant about how to enjoy itself as about how to rule other people. Tha it cannot its goverments govern or its education educate we may take as a thrifling weakness og oligarchy; but pleasure we do loo to see in such class; and it has surely come to its decrepitude when it cannot make its pleasures please.
