Fallacies

Ch. 2. Posterity Chainers
§.1. Exposure
1. Politician at large

4

5
Against the proposed
good law, and thence
for the self-perpetuating
law, his text
is Fiat justitia, ruat
coelum
: his praise
liberality.

For the proposed law
thence against the self-
perpetuating law,
his text is Salus populi
suprema lex
: or Sabbath
for man, not man for
Sabbath: his praise
of strict justice.

Crop and pile might
determine the side he
shall take.

The praise of probity and the joint praise of sagacity and
liberality — between these two praises he has to hake his
choice.

An engagement is a sacred thing. One Engagement Contract is the main fountain of justice Fiat justitia, ruat
coelum

It is with engagements as with the Sabbath. "The
Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath."
And so is it with engagements. Salus populi suprema
lex este
.

[Taking one of these aphorisms for the exergue of a guinea half penny
on the face of it the other on the reverse, a man might
toss up: heads and tails crop and pile. Whether heads crop turn up
or tails pile the politician our Machiavel finds himself equally at his ease]
