By Isaac B. Berkson

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, September 1937

It has the potential to be used as a positive factor in government and civilization by using dissenting opinion as a means of arriving at the truth. Today, the characteristic forces of the century revolve about the struggle of the masses for a democracy which would be effective and real, which would achieve a greater measure of economic and political equality.
