Political Cartoons by Glenn Foden

"'Personal Liberty' is at last an uncrowned, dethroned king, with no one to do him reverence. The social consciousness is so far developed. and is becoming so autocratic, that institutions and governments must give heed to its mandate and share their life accordingly. We are no longer frightened by that ancient bogy – 'paternalism in government.' We affirm boldly, it is the business of government to be just that – Paternal. Nothing human can be foreign to a true government."

- Rev. Josiah Strong, prominent Progressive and  Social Gospel leader in his American Institute of Social Service's July 1914 issue of The Gospel of the Kingdom, hailing the progressive spirit that was at last putting an end to 'personal liberty'
