Powys on marriage--outtakes
Fox Movietone News Story 4-477
John Cowper Powys argues against Bertrand Russell's claim that marriage is a failure, and says that it is natural to want a family. Powys argues that if marriage is a failure then so is family and procreation, and that the institution of marriage is an extension of prior instinct.
