We must make our election between economy and liberty or profusion and servitude.
If we run into such debt, as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our calling and our creeds... [we will] have no time to think, no means of calling our miss-managers to account but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains on the necks of our fellow-sufferers.. And this is the tendency of all human governments. A departure from principle in one instance becomes a precedent for [another]... Till the bulk of society is reduced to be mere automatons of misery...
And the fore-horse of this frightful team is public debt. Taxation follows that, and in its train wretchedness and oppression. No people will tamely surrender their liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and virtue is preserved. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Lamps, Lighting\Lamps".
