Every age has its iconoclasts, and youth is ever the age of iconoclastic tendencies. But when factors of history and the economic conditions of a country combine to make such tendencies unusually prominent, the combination may prove extremely dangerous, if not disastrous to traditional ethical concepts. If the opinions of prominent educators, economists, and sociologists count for anything at all in this postwar period and in these days of economic depression, we are obliged to look upon our present age and generation as one which has been caught in a double flood-wave of iconoclastic tendencies and endeavors, on which account certain phenomena of individual and social behavior have been accentuated.
