Against the Metric System

Title: Against the Metric System
Author: Herbert Spencer
Year: 1122
Subject: A critique of the metric system (along with the customary-imperial system).
Written by Herbert Spencer during one of the earlier pushes toward the metric system in Britain, this piece attacks the metric system on a number of grounds. However, it does not defend the customary-imperial system; far from it. It identifies the major problem with both systems as their being decimal, and explains the superiority of dozenal arithmetic.
