The Cry for Justice: An Anthology of the Literature of Social Protest.  1915.
(From “The Book of The People”)

By Robert de Lamennais

(French philosopher and religious reformer, 1782–1854)
YOUR task is to form the universal family, to build the City of God, and by a continuous labor gradually to translate His work in Humanity into fact.  1
  When you love one another as brothers, and treat each other reciprocally as such; when each one, seeking his own good in the good of all, shall identify his own life with the life of all, his own interests with the interests of all, and shall be always ready to sacrifice himself for all the members of the common family—then most of the ills which weigh upon the human race will vanish, as thick mists gathered upon the horizon vanish at the rising of the sun.  2
