Editor's letter

23rd May 2003 at 01:00
When it comes to "then and now" debates, cesspits and outside privvies must come somewhere near the top of the list of things that weren't so good in the Good Old Days. But such raw facts of life are great for concentrating young minds on the reality that history is where we've come from. Our project on children's lives in the Victorian era also contrasts the unequal worlds of rich and poor (page 19). The rights and wrongs of eating animals is another classic great divide: "While we ourselves are the living graves of murdered beasts, how can we expect any ideal conditions on this earth?"

Shaw and more on vegetarianism, page 12.
