Memorial.

It is men in opposition that act f most consequently assured
for censure.

Men are soon bored of in they If a man speculates it is to judge = if he judges
are never tired. it is to approve or to condemn.

37
The more a man praises another, the more he
choates that other in comparison with himself,
the more he augments the apparent proportion measure
of his duties towards the duties owing from him to the person praised. On the
other hand the more he condemns another, the
more he depresses that other in comparison with
himself: the more he diminishes the apparent
measure of his duties towards the person censured.
For this and other reasons men are (found to be)
soon tired of praising: of censuring they are never
tired. In particular they are never tired of censuring
men those in power public station.
Dedommagement – Dupes. v.7.

We seen then how naturally it may happen, that a
th minister and the people may be (better )
upon the worst terms imaginable, without either Minister the
being people's being (to blame trust for it) in fault at all:
or the M and without the Ministers being any otherwise in
fault, than by that habit of silence and reserve which custom accounts for, but which reason would seek in vain to justify.
His merits for want whatever they may be, for want of
being made known (to them), are lost to them. On
the other hand by owing the activity of his adversaries binds
his character is (born sunk down) with on their imaginations affections by of the people by a vast load of
artificial imputed villainy which his hear abhors.
He becomes odious to them. They express manifest their abhorrence
by clamour, by menaces, perhaps by actual violence.
These outrages tokens of aversion of for which his
conscience can not suggest to him any, (deserving) just cause
