If it didn't, we'd have to correct it, wouldn't we? After all, it
is not so much the details of the principles themselves but the
underlying theme of civilized achievement that lead to them which
is our goal. Max's primary contribution was not so much defining
new goals, but in recognizing all the necessary conditions of the
goal of civilization, and disabusing us of popular ideas that turn
out to be contrary to that goal.
