1823. April 24
Constitut. Code

Ch. 1. Ruling principles
§ 2. Means employed

1.+

is – moral, intellectual,
active.

2.
28. Active, is – knowledge,
judgment.

3.
29. Moral, is – disposition
to contribute to greatest
happiness.

3*
All of
greatest
happiness of all,
this a small part
of the number will be.

4.
30. Moral deficient, by
abundance of intellectual
and active, aggregate
is not encreased
but diminished.
The more able, the more
mischievous.

5.
For different branches
of appropriate aptitude
correspondent means.

6.
I. For Moral do.
1. through power of 1. In the hands of all keep the
of the Rule for all
2. Minimize in each, the
power of doing evil.

7.
3. Leave as little as
may be
diminished.

8.

at each subordinate functionary's

Ch. 1. Ruling principles
§ 2. Means employed

10.
II. For intellectual & active
1. Establish appropriate
preliminary tests and
securities. See

11.
2. Maximize their efficiency
and extent of their application.
See

12.
3. Minimize the money
inducements for accepting
Office.
Aptitude established,
the less the money required,
the greater the
relish.
So, the more a man
will give.
Every penny, added to
this the minimum, adds
to predatory desires
and means of gratifying
them.
A throne, seat of the most
extravagantly fed, is so
every where of the most insatiable,
appetites.

How to number these reconcile
arrangements made in
this view, with each
other and with the necessary
responsibility of
each official subordinate
for the conduct of the
Subordinates, See

1
So far as depends upon
services performed by the
functionaries of government
the degree in which the
ends of government as above
are fulfilled, may be sad
to depend on the degree of
official aptitude possessed
by them, taken in the aggregate.
