HOPE AS PRESUMPTION.  Our social order will slowly melt away, as all former orders have done, as soon as the suns of new opinions have shone upon mankind with a new glow.  We can only wish this melting away in the hope thereof, and we are only reasonably entitled to hope when we believe that we and our equals have more strength in heart and head than the representatives of the existing state of things.  As a rule, therefore, this hope will be a presumption, an over estimation.
