In These New Times

A new paradigm for a post-imperial world

Thought for the day, by Charles Darwin

A most important obstacle in civilised countries to an increase in

the number of men of a superior class has been strongly insisted on by

Mr. Greg and Mr. Galton,* namely, the fact that the very poor and

reckless, who are often degraded by vice, almost invariably marry

early, whilst the careful and frugal, who are generally otherwise

virtuous, marry late in life, so that they may be able to support

themselves and their children in comfort. Those who marry early

produce within a given period not only a greater number of

generations, but, as shewn by Dr. Duncan,*(2) they produce many more

children. The children, moreover, that are borne by mothers during the

prime of life are heavier and larger, and therefore probably more

vigorous, than those born at other periods. Thus the reckless,

degraded, and often vicious members of society, tend to increase at

a quicker rate than the provident and generally virtuous members. Or

as Mr. Greg puts the case: “The careless, squalid, unaspiring Irishman

multiplies like rabbits: the frugal, foreseeing, self-respecting,

ambitious Scot, stern in his morality, spiritual in his faith,

sagacious and disciplined in his intelligence, passes his best years

in struggle and in celibacy, marries late, and leaves few behind

him. Given a land originally peopled by a thousand Saxons and a

thousand Celts- and in a dozen generations five-sixths of the

population would be Celts, but five-sixths of the property, of the

power, of the intellect, would belong to the one-sixth of Saxons

that remained. In the eternal ‘struggle for existence,’ it would be

the inferior and less favoured race that had prevailed- and

prevailed by virtue not of its good qualities but of its faults.”
