1822 Aug. 11.
Constitut. Code

14.
Proportioned to power
of granting is do. of refusing:
as by grants
are produced love and
gratitude, so by refusals,
or apprehensions
of do. fear and respect.
Thus, to the power
possessed by the opulent
of doing good is
added do. of doing negative
evil.

15.
So also in various ways
of doing positive evil,
without danger of punishment.

16.
Note hence the immense
quantity of
power possessed by Monarch
who, to supremacy,
in opulence,
adds do. in power &
factitious dignity.

17.
Hence exhausted
have been the powers
of poetry and oratory
in singing the supposed
merits and concealing
the demerits of the rich,
powerful and dignified.

18.
Thus Virgil and Horace
rewarded by the
despot for eulogy –
Ovid punished for partial
divulgation.

19.
Seen now, how unavoidably
the ideas of
virtue &c. have in the
eyes of the undiscerning
multitude been
associated with do. of
prosperity &c. by means
of interested praise.

20.
Seen how opposite to
truth is the belief of the
reality of the corresponding
connection. To propagate
it is to propagate
delusion.

21.
By every sign, visible
or audible, by which such
false believe is encreased,
the force of this instrument
of misrule
is encreased.

22.
Cry of dignity of the
Crown &c. its effects
1. Labour in vain to fill
the ever leaky cup of
personal gratification.
2. Labour to encrease
the delusion.
3. Thence the depravity.
4. Thence the misrule.
5. Thence the consummation
of the sinister
sacrifice.
6. Thence the consummation
of despotism.

23.
Seen, that every irremoveable
chief is an
enemy to all within
his rule, but his Instruments
and Co-partners
in sinister profit.

24.
Seen also, by every advance
towards the dissolution
of this association
real service is
done to man's association
by which the instruments
of vice &c.
are palmed on mankind
as the do. of virtue
&c: no tunnel to filthy
for them to be rolled
in it.
