The Fight for Conservation eBook

This eBook from the Gutenberg Project consists of approximately 82 pages of information about The Fight for Conservation.

The task of translating these new standards into action lies before us.  From sea to sea the people are taking a fresh grip on their own affairs.  The conservation of political liberty will take its proper place alongside the conservation of the means of living, and in both we shall look to the permanent welfare by the plain people as the supreme end.  The way out lies in direct interest by the people in their own affairs and direct action in the few great things that really count.

What is the conclusion of the whole matter?  The special interests must be put out of politics.  I believe the young men will do it.
