Excerpt from Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine, Vol. 132: July-December, 1882 Ideas of political liberty, with their kindred corollaries, are mere illu sions, and that the progress which has seemed to go along with them is a progress towards anarchy and social dissolution. If this was the real purport of the message, the subject ought to receive further and better elucidation at the hands of the biographer than he has yet given to it. If Carlyle's reputa tion depends upon the truth of this prophecy being tested by time, it must rise on the ruins of his coun try, and a future generation will be too much absorbed in their own affairs to care much for the fame of the prophet.
