I do not believe in the doctrine of the greatest good for the greatest number. It means in its nakedness that in order to achieve the supposed good of fifty-one percent the interest of forty-nine percent may be, or rather should be, sacrificed. It is a heartless doctrine & has done harm to humanity. The only real, dignified, human doctrine is the greatest good of all, & this can be achieved only by uttermost self-sacrifice.
