Now, if that ploughshare did nothing but beget other ploughshares, in a polypous manner, -- however the great cluster of polypous plough might glitter in the sun, it would have lost its function of capital. Thus, wine, which the Greeks, in their Bacchus, made rightly the type of all passion, and which, when used, "cheereth god and man" (that is to say, strengthens both the divine life, or reasoning power, and the earthy, or carnal power, of man); yet, when abused, becomes "Dionysos," hurtful especially to the divine part of man, or reason. to helpful or healing functions); and "chosen to be kings" (i.e. Unhappily for the progress of the science of Political Economy, the plus quantities, or, -- if I may be allowed to coin an awkward plural -- the pluses, make a very positive and venerable appearance in the world, so that every one is eager to learn the science which produces results so magnificent; whereas the minuses have, on the other hand, a tendency to retire into back streets, and other places of shade, -- or even to get themselves wholly and finally put out of sight in graves: which renders the algebra of this science peculiar, and difficultly legible; a large number of its negative signs being written by the account-keeper in a kind of red ink, which starvation thins, and makes strangely pale, or even quite invisible ink, for the Might I inquire the species of fish?

And this faith, with the facts on which it may rest, it is quite our first business to recover and keep: not only believing, but even by experience assuring ourselves, that there are yet in the world men who can be restrained from fraud otherwise than by the fear of losing employment;(2*) nay, that it is even accurately in proportion to the number of such men in any State, that the said State does or can prolong its existence. There is a flush of the body which is full of warmth and life; and another which will Suppose the subject of inquiry, instead of being House-law (Oikonomia), has been Star-law (Astronomia), and that, ignoring distinction between stars fixed and wandering, as here between wealth radiant and wealth reflective, the writer had begun thus: 'Every one has a notion, sufficiently correct for common purpose, of what is meant by stars. They "have met:" more literally, have stood in each other's way (obviaverunt).

The fortitude and intelligence which acquire riches are intended, by the Giver of both, not to scatter, nor to give away, but to employ those riches in the service of mankind; in other words, in the redemption of the erring and aid of the weak --that is to say, there is first to be the work to gain money; then the Sabbath of use for it -- the Sabbath, whose law is, not to lose life, but to save.

UNTOTHIS LAST BY JOHNRUSKIN. This price depends on four variable quantities. Just wars do not need so much money to support them; for most of the men who wage such, wage them gratis; but for an unjust war, men's bodies and souls have both to be bought; and the best tools of war for them besides; which makes such war costly to the maximum; not to speak of the cost of base fear, and angry suspicion, between nations which have not grace nor honesty enough in all their multitudes to buy an hour's peace of mind with: as, at present, France and England, purchasing of each other ten millions sterling worth of consternation annually, (a remarkably light crop, half thorns and half aspen leaves, --sown, reaped, and granaried by the "science" of the modern political economist, teaching covetousness instead of truth.) In the just case, one man works for the first hirer, one for the person hired, and so on, down or up through the various grades of service; the influence being carried forward by justice, and arrested by injustice. We had better seek for a system which will develop honest men, than for one which will deal cunningly with vagabonds. And this the more, because in his first definition of labour he includes in the idea of it "all feelings of a disagreeable kind connected with the employment of one's thoughts in a particular occupation." Truly, a large addition to the material force; -- consisting, however, be it observed, not more in operations carried on in Fritz's head, than in operations carried on in his armies' heart. When we ask a service of any man, he may either give it us freely, or demand payment for it. man. It may indeed happen, and does happen often, that if the master is a man of sense ad energy, a large quantity of material work may be done under mechanical pressure, enforced by strong will and guided by wise method; also it may happen, and does happen often, that if the master is indolent and weak (however good-natured), a very small quantity of work, and that bad, may be produced by the servant's undirected strength, and contemptuous gratitude. But the world cannot become a factory, nor a mine. The farmer who cuts his hay at the right time; the shipwright who drives his bolts well home in sound wood; the builder who lays good bricks in well-tempered mortar; the housewife who takes care of her furniture in the parlour, and guards against all waste in her kitchen; and the singer who rightly disciplines, and never overstrains her voice, are all political economists in the true and final sense: adding continually to the riches and well-being of the nation to which It is only in labour there can be profit -- that is to say, a "making in advance," or "making in favour of" (from proficio).

For which reason, and because of the honour that there is in rearing children,(26*) while the wife is said to be as the vine (for cheering), the children are as the olive branch, for praise: nor for praise only, but for peace (because large families can only be reared in times of peace): though since, in their spreading and voyaging in various directions, they distribute strength, they are, to the home strength, as arrives in the hand of the giant -- striking here, for the article they produce.

Unto This Last is an important work of political economic though that influenced Gandhi, among others. And all unjust war being supportable, if not by pillage of the enemy, only by loans from capitalists, these loans are repaid by subsequent taxation of the people, who appear to have no will in the matter, the capitalists' will being the primary root of the war; but its real root is the covetousness of the whole nation, rendering it incapable of faith, frankness, or justice, and bringing about, therefore, in due time, his own separate loss and Grant the soil equally good for the tree in each case. down his chimney, and blow his roof off.

This being the real nature of capital, it follows that there are two kinds of true production, always going on in an active State: one of seed, and one of food; or production for the Ground, and for the Mouth; both of which are by covetous persons thought to be production only for the granary; whereas the function of the granary is but intermediate and conservative, fulfilled in distribution; else it ends in nothing but mildew, and nourishment of rats and worms. Unto This Last is an essay on economy by John Ruskin, critical of the 18th and 19th century … Written in 1860 as a manifesto against the prevailing economic theories of the mid-19th century, Unto This Last summons a series of moral arguments to denounce what its author perceived as the devastating social consequences of capitalism. The seeking of death is a grand expression of the true course of men's toil in such business. I have said balances of justice, meaning, in the term justice, to include affection, -- such affection as one man owes to another. None of these things you can know.

The only difference (in the outset, is that the just man pays sufficiently, the unjust man insufficiently, for the labour of the single person employed. His friend may perhaps have toiled with an energy quickened by the enlarged need, but in the end his own land and property must have suffered by the withdrawal of so much of his time and thought from them: and the united property of the two men will be certainly less than it would have been if both had remained in One cannot help imagining that the riches of the establishment must be of a very theoretical and documentary character. 2. It is not the master's interest to pay wages so low as to leave the men sickly and depressed, nor the workman's interest to be paid high wages if the smallness of the master's profit hinders him from enlarging his business, or conducting it in a safe and liberal way. Meat, for instance, may be so good as to be fit for any one to eat, or so bad as to be fit for no one to eat. the thing which we have practically to deal with is its chloride; and this, the moment we touch it on our established principles, sends us and or apparatus through the It were to be wished that our well-educated merchants recalled to mind always this much of their latin schooling, -- that the nominative of valorem (a word already sufficiently familiar to them) is valor; a word which, therefore, ought to be familiar to them. Every capitalist of Europe has acquired his fortune by following the known laws of our science, and increases his capital daily by an adherence to them. “Unto This Last:” x could be sure, if he chose to pay the Government price, that he got for his money bread that was bread, ale that was ale, and work that was work.

The quantity of labour the purchaser can afford, to obtain the thing opposed to B, the quantity of labour the seller can afford, to keep it. If we promise to give him less labour than he has given us, we under-pay him. And therefore, the idea that directions can be given for the gaining of wealth, irrespectively of the consideration of its moral sources, or that any general and technical law of purchase and gain can be set down for national practice, is perhaps the most insolently futile of all that ever beguiled men through their vices. A strange political economy; the only one, nevertheless, that ever was or can be: all political economy founded on self-interest(32*) being but the fulfilment of that which once brought schism into the Policy of angels, and ruin into the If ye think good, give me my price; And if not, forbear.

We made learned experiments upon pure nitrogen, and have convinced ourselves that it is a very manageable gas: but, behold! There may, however, be acquisition, which is a very different thing. It is necessary to imitate the virtues of the West, but there is no doubt that Western standards are often bad, and everyone will agree that we should shun all evil things. The ancient and honourable Highland method of blackmail; the more modern and less honourable system of obtaining goods on credit, and the other variously improved methods of appropriation --which, in major and minor scales of industry, down to the most artistic pocket-picking, we owe to recent genius, -- all come 18.
