We can see this in the East. The wish of every person there is to do without. They will rather eat with their fingers than with fork and knife; they will rather eat on the floor than at a table; they will rather go bareheaded than wear a hat, and they will rather go barefoot than wear shoes. All their present backwardness is because they have lost ambition for advancement. When they had ambition they too progressed, and at one time they were first in civilization.
