D.H. Lawrence on Ben Franklin

From Michael P.F. van der Galien's blog comes a thought provoking
piece D.H. Lawrence on Benjamin Franklin.

"The perfectibility of man, dear God! When every man as long as he remains alive is in himself a multitude of conflicting men. Which of these do you choose to perfect, at the expense of every other?"

Just like men, institutions are multitudes of conflicting men. Do the faces which they seek to project really recognize the inner working?
