III Whig Demerits
Fallacies
3. Not measures but men

4

Glorious Revolution! matchless Constitution! not measures
but men! all this is practice & all this is practical wisdom

But any — -your ends with yourselves which ends — look to your measures look to
the means through which you pursue them — try whether your
the end you pursue is the greatest happiness of the greatest number
— or whether you hear of any other end and that a
one

say whether it be by any other than the great body of the people that the interest
of the people ever has been or ever can be pursued

speak of aptitude on the part of

all this is theory, dull theory: wild delirious

Whatever is good if it be really good is good in theory: but by
good in theory it is of course bad in practice: it is therefore bad
and as such ought to be avoided

Good in theory bad in practice alas what benefit can it be
if to a Whig to make use of any such of these arguments. Like
to Mr B Bathurst, has merit at l he is a
how ready how perfect is the use of them: will how much weight
they are from her side of the those and in particular for his
person than for yours?
