Excerpt from The Rise and Fall of Society: An Essay on the Economic Forces That Underlie Social Institutions

Jurisprudence has come around to the same idea, holding more and more that human behavior is not a matter Of per sonal responsibility as much as it is a re?ection Of the social forces working on the individual; the tendency is to lay on Society the blame for crimes committed by its members. This, too, is a tenet of sociology, the increasing popularity of which, and its elevation to a science, attest to the hold that collectivism has on our times. The scientist is no longer hon ored as a bold adventurer into the unknown, in search of nature's principles, but has become a servant Of Society, to which he owes his training and his keep. Heroes and heroic exploits are being demoted to accidental outcroppings Of mass thought and movements. The superior person, the self starting captain of industry, the inherent genius - these are fictions; all are but robots made by Society. Economics is the study of how Society makes a living, under its own tech niques and prescriptions, not how individuals, in pursuit of happiness, go about the making of a living. And philosophy, or what goes by that name, has made truth itself an attribute Of Society.
