Radicalism not dangerous

II. Experience
5 II Ireland

That the p If there be a case any cases in which the on the part of
those who have applied their minds to the subject the insincerity of professions can be inferred with reason from
other parts of the discourse held by the same persons on the
same subject, it will surely be this. surely this may be reckoned as one Here as a ques

the establishment of radical reform destruction of property
would ensue. Now Of this question from first to last the affirmation has

Tory Newspapers — that of radical reform general destruction
of property is [not only on the part of those who advocate

of a ground for any such assurance.

on grounds facts in support of which they have none,
either of them been able to produce a single word — the
slightest attempt at argument.
