Transcript WHAT'S TO BE DONE? 57 e f I said (what I always say in such cases) that evil cannot b conquered by evil, but only by not doing evil. " But it has become impossible to live so. We have no work and no land. What's to become of us ?" said he, looking at me from under his brows. " I am old enough to be your grandfather," said I, " and I won't argue with you ; but I will say one thing to you as to a young man beginning life. If what the Government is doing is bad, what you are doing, or are preparing to do, is equally bad. You, as a young man forming your habits, should do one thing: you should live rightly, not sinning or resisting the will of God." He shook his head, dissatisfied, and said, " Every man has his own God. Millions of men—millions of Gods." " All the same," said I, " I advise you to cease taking part in the Revolution." " What's to be done?" replied he. "One can't go on enduring and enduring. What's to be done? " I felt that no good would come of our talk and wished to ride away, but he stopped me. " Won't you help me to subscribe for a newspaper ?" said he. I refused and rode away from him, feeling sad. He was not one of those factory unemployed of whom thousands are now roaming Russia; but he was a peasant agriculturist living in the village, and there are not hundreds nor thousands but millions of such peasants ; and the infection of such a mood as his is spreading more and more. On returning home, I found my family in the saddest frame of mind. They had just read the newspaper that had come (it was the 6th October, old style). "Twenty-two more executions to-day! It is horrible," said my daughter. " Not only horrible, but senseless," said I. " But what's to be done ? They cannot be allowed to rob and kill, and go unpunished," said one of those present.
