George Chetwynd Griffith Quotes
“In another generation the voice of the majority, the blind, brute force of numbers, will rule everything on Earth. What government there may be will be a mere matter of counting heads. Individual freedom will by swift degrees vanish from the Earth, and human society will become a huge machine, grinding all men down to the same level until the monotony of life becomes unendurable.”

- Description: George Griffith (1857 – 1906), full name George Chetwynd Griffith-Jones, was a prolific British science fiction writer and noted explorer who wrote during the late Victorian and Edwardian age. Many of his visionary tales appeared in magazines such as Pearson's Magazine and Pearson's Weekly before being published as novels. Griffith was extremely popular in the United Kingdom, though he failed to find similar acclaim in the United States, in part due to his revolutionary and socialist views. A journalist, rather than scientist, by background, what his stories lack in scientific rigour and literary grace they make up for in sheer exuberance of execution.
