PUBLIC OPINION

England and `making it what it is' than Commons or Cabinet, Church or Trade Union."(1) Mr. Cummings says in fact the same thing of the famous Moscow trial of the English engineers. "The British Press," he says, "almost with one mind delivered itself of a torrent of venomous abuse. ... Even the soberest organs of the Press took a hand in the ferocious war of words. The Times expressed in furious language its opinion on the `tragic farce.' ... The proceedings were not so much reported as misdescribed in headline and text ... in one of the loudest and shrillest screams ever let forth in print. ... The total effect ... was ... to make Great Britain something of a laughingstock in all civilised countries."(2)
Sir Norman Angell rightly argues that "all revision of conceptions in the past has been the work of small minorities, of individual minds, of a few heretics, encyclopedists or pamphleteers, able to reach other minds for a sufficient length of time to break down the first prejudice. But the modern Press, by virtue of the psychological Gresham law acting in the particular economic and industrial conditions of our time, tends to destroy that influence of that individual mind maintaining a heresy. If the feudalisms, autocracies, dynasties, and inquisitions had possessed the modern mechanical Press, operating on closely packed populations whose industrial occupations demanded most of their mental energy, that control of the mind by which alone the old tyrannies were made possible might well have been maintained for all time."(3) The connections between the Press and the Government
