Davis discusses how the forces of history continue pressing forward in all areas, including the government. Nothing is static or finished, and change is constant: "the impulse of an ever-expanding conception of democracy, have the best of their effort and thought. Today this same unseen spirit, working in the minds of men and women all of the land is changing, the form and broadening the scope of the common efforts of humanity. Through the change is coming greater freedom, higher development, and a sturdier, and nobler generation of men and women."
