We cannot prove that those are in error who tell us that society has
reached a turning point, that we have seen our best days. But so said
all before us, and with just as much reason. On what principle is
it that, When we see nothing but improvement behind us, we are to
expect nothing but deterioration before us?
-- Lord Thomas Babington (1800-1859)
