ARE WE LIKE THE GREEK VASE PAINTERS? “This is the length of time it usually takes for a people, after a far-reaching social change, to get habits which are no longer relevant thoroughly out of their system; for the first generation of survivors are still people brought up under the old order, and the second generation are people brought up by people who were brought up under the old order.” I suspect that a lot of social virtues now are practiced more out of habit than for any other reason. Will they persist down the line?
