The school of journalism and periodical-filling these days is preoccupied with the ego, with personality: the universal and impersonal does not attract or interest. Moreover, it is only the bestial, the negative, the petty, and the surface characteristics of the ego which hold their scribblers' attention. Prying, meddlesome, trivial gossip and pulling others to pieces is a favourite sport.
