An Emergent Society
The overall picture, then, is of an emergent society not yet able to contain and nourish all its best talent. One may argue about the extent of New Zealand's concern with the steady drain away, but no one should question the right of any New Zealander to seek the best climate for his own development. Let us be aware of the problem and recognise the need for advancement. A society gets the culture it deserves.
