to each other by the same laws of harmony that united the inner world of equally complex mental powers. The faculties do not have new laws added to them so that they may act in the functions of society. They come forth panoplied with all the powers of state.
Our bodies, like our brains, are perfect systems of government, where each member does its work free from undue interference, but yet regulated by the work of every other organ, and ever obedient to its centers and the movement of the whole. Such a systemized whole should the people of a nation present. An organization that will meet all the wants of the people, and secure to each an opportunity to act according to the best of his ability.
Although civilism has represented the lower half of the faculties, yet it does not do even this in a complete and consistent way. For example, in Britain and the United States, the three departments of the government are legislative, executive and judicial. But if we divide the classes of wants in society into only three parts, these will be intellectual, social and industrial, for they arise directly from three great classes of faculties in man, the intellect, affection and volition.

In 1776 the founders of the American Republic thought that there should certainly be a law-making power (legislative), a power to see that the laws were carried into effect (executive), and a power to see that those who transgressed the laws should be judged and punished (judicial). All this seemed very reasonable to them. They had inherited such
