Annotation

Considerable progress has been made through science in the hundred years between 1871 and 1971, but the author says that perfection will never be reached. Australia is now a republic. Albion (England) is one of the few monarchies left, and the current king, Albert the Third, is a “democrat, deist, and philanthropist.” World confederation has eliminated war. The pamphlet is mostly an attack on religion. In the future there is no clerical dress; the major belief systems are Deism and Catholicism; there is no religious education; the Pope is directly elected; and priests marry.
