scale. Sold distinction
two stations – viz.
1. Opulence.
2. Non-opulence.

25.
In regard to useful
qualities in general,
aptitude as to office
in particular aphorisms
indicative of
the connection between
inferiority in
the scale of merit,
and superiority on the
do. of prosperity and influence.
1. The more valuable
the mass of services
a man has at command,
without need
of retribution by beneficence,
the less his

beneficence: negative
and positive.

26.

moral aptitude in
the opulent.

4. Proportioned to the
correctness, clearness &
completeness of a man's
conception of another's sufferings
and enjoyments,
is the strength of his
sympathy of affection,
where he has any.

29.
5. Relative sensibility
wanting, so may sympathy
of affection be,
although do. of conception
be present: but, no
sympathy of conception
no do. of affection.

30.
6. In opulent's breast absence
of sympathy of
conception joined to
sense of relative independence
in destroying
beneficence positive
and negative,
towards the unopulent.

31.
II. As to intellectual do.
1. The more wealth a
man has without
labour, the less need
he has to labour – in
body or mind.
2. The less need a man
has to labour, the less
inducement he has.
3. The less the inducement
the less the probability.
4. The less the labour, the
less the probability of intellectual
aptitude, so
far as depends on labour.

32.
III. As to active talent,
the less the labour, the
less the probability.

33.
IV. As between understanding
and will. The
greater the exercise given
to the will, the less to
the understanding.

34.
According to all these
indications, the Monarch
as such stands lowest
in the scale of aptitude.

35.
Under him the Members
of every Aristocracy: aptitude
is inversely as attitude.

36.
Accordingly, in Aristocratical
bodies, not by reasoning
referring to greatest
happiness, but by
collision of wills – the
strongest having it – are
all results produced.
