Reprint. A Challenge to Politicians - at the present time there is an extraordinary clamour of voices claiming to interpret the will and the wishes of the People. But the People is a large and vague abstraction. Who are they ? It is the author's contention that the People is a stage army, composed of journalists, public speakers and other politically minded members of the clerkly or educated class. They are persons who make their living and find their vocation in the formation of public opinion and in the bureaucracy; they are dangerously removed from the hazards and realities of ordinary life.
