The Problems of Constraint Through the Influence of Lay Pressure Groups

  • Sam Shuster

Abstract

I dislike talks which start by telling you that you cannot understand the subject unless you see it in context. The reason is .not so much because it means that the lecturer hasn’t a point of view of his own, although it usually does, but that the viewpoint is too broad; and, whereas a broad approach may give a balanced picture of a complicated problem, you never advance upon such a problem with a broadly balanced approach as much as with a sharp point, however painfully misplaced. You will understand what I am about to say when I tell you I believe that you cannot understand this subject unless you see it in context.
