The Duties of Men (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Duties of Men It is now almost universally admitted by all parties, in civilised communities, that, without education, without a more liberal diffusion of knowledge, and cultivation of the social duties and affections in the great mass of the people, the most serious evils may be apprehended. In the impending changes, which the state of the human mind - half unshackled by the press from its old political bondage, and which polilical knowledge renders inevitable, - therc cannot be otherwise any durable peace, any security to life and pro perty, any safeguard or barrier powerful enough to resist the torrent of popular revolutions - a torrent of opinion far wider and more resistless in its course than that of brute, barbaric force, which plunged the world into the long-enduring darkness of the middle ages.
