Man's Growth Toward Civilization


One of the original "Monuments Men," George Leslie Stout had a hopeful look toward mankind's future and believed that man is growing toward a more civilized state. With an appetite for knowledge, fairness, and truth, Mr. Stout sees each individual contributing to a civilization larger than himself.

Years ago, I sat occasionally in the company of a few scholars who had concluded that man as a creature is slowly getting worse, moving downwards from an older and a better state towards a poorer one. I could not agree with them. To me, mankind, a vast family of creatures, is growing inevitably towards a state of civilization.

 

I believe that in time long past, there started among us an appetite for understanding and fairness. We began to learn mercy, to love others, to seek truth, to inquire after knowledge, and to find contentment in the song of a bird, or the shape of a hill against the sky. We began to look for justice in the government of our affairs, to tell about the meanings of our life together, to laugh at our follies. And we began to make things that would contain some of the meanings we found and hold them in words or paint or stone.

 

How this craving for civilization started I do not claim to know. I do not expect it to be satisfied by any contrivance, or imagine it to be the special property of any group or any race. I cannot link my own belief in it to the revelation of a single event. Somehow the belief came, it stays, and it furnishes me with a constant motive for work and for existence.

 

I have to admit that man’s growth toward civilization looks slow and unsteady. At moments, whole nations seem to fall back, their people fret for deliverance from selfish fears. They pay homage to persons who have snatched power for themselves, all manner of tyrants, and people beg them for comfort and for peace. But when I look beyond the weak spots, I can notice those men who pursue knowledge for the common benefit, or labor for sound structures rather than for gain, or fight and die—not for praise or possessions but for the freedom of others. These are not strange or distant to men.

 

A friend of mine talked over the fence one day with a farmer in the stony hills of New Hampshire. My friend said, “There must be a lot of drudgery on a place like this.” And the farmer answered him, “Work ain’t drudgery if you’re building something.” That, I believe, is it—to build something: a farm on a hillside, a home, a mill, a congenial neighborhood, an explanation of natural laws, a cure for ills, a comedy, a record of history, a poem, an altar. To be of such works is to move on the way to civilization, and it must be a way without end.

 

Although they might wander off, men come back to works like these and back to the way of civilization. I believe they always will. At such tasks they are free from strife, they are calm in the awareness that although the partial of a man’s life is small, the grandeur of men’s growth is infinite. An old saying goes, “He who sustains all the calamities of the country can be the king of the world;” and another: “The meek shall inherit the Earth.” This I believe.

This week's podcast is made possible by a generous donation from the Louis C. Skinner Foundation. Renard E* director.And this brings me to what I believe.
I believe life is a spiritual struggle.
I believe in being gracious to others.
I believe in the power of science fiction.
I believe in singing badly.
I believe that God lives in the space between people.
I believe in so much more than freedom of speech and I believe that it is time that we all took a stand.
This I believe. War is hard on a country's landscape, its infrastructure, its innocent civilians, and its fine art. During World War Two, a group of service members was signed the task of protecting Europe's artwork and recovering the pieces that have been stolen by the Nazis. They were known as the Monuments Men, and one of them, George Leslie Stout recorded an essay for Edward and This I Believe.
Years ago, I said occasionally in the company of a few scholars, who had concluded that men as a creature is slowly getting worse, moving downwards from an older and better state towards a poorer one. I could not agree with them. To me, mankind, a vast family of creatures, is growing inevitably towards a state of civilization. I believe that in time long past, there started among us, an appetite for understanding and fairness. We began to learn mercy, to love others, to seek truth, to inquire after knowledge to find contentment in the song of a bird and the shape of a hill against the sky. We began to look for justice and government about our affairs, to tell about the meanings of our life together, to laugh at our follies. And we began to make things that would contain some of the meanings we found, and hold them in words or paint on stone.

How this craving for civilization started at colliding to know? I did not expect to be satisfied by any contrivance, or imagine it to be the special property of any group or any race. I cannot link my own belief in it to the revolution of a single event. Somehow, I believe king, its states and it furnishes me with a constant motif for work and for existance.
I have to admit that men's growth towards civilization looks slow and unsteady. At moment, all nations seem to fall back. Their people fret for deliverance from selfish, fear. They pay homage to persons who snatch power for themselves. All men are tyrants. And people beg them for comfort and for peace.
But when I look beyond ** and notice those men who pursue knowledge for the common benefit, or labour for sound structures rather than for game. All fight and die, not for preys or possessions, but for the freedom of the others. These are not strange or distant men. A friend of mine talked over the fence one day, there was a farmer in this Stony Hills in New Hampshire. My friend said there must be a lot of dredges on the place like this, and the farmer answered him, working in a dredge and you will build something. That I believe is it. To build something. A farmer on a hillside, a home of mill continue labourhood, explanation of natural laws, a cure for ills, a comdy, a regular history, a b* and an altar. To be at such work is to move on a way to civilization, and it must be a way without end. Although they might wander off, men come back to works like these and back to the way of civilization. I believe they always will. At such tasks, they are free from strife. They are in harmony awareness that although the path of a man's life is small, the grandeur of men's growth is infinite.
