An Impartial and Comprehensive View of the Present State of Great Britain
Excerpt from An Impartial and Comprehensive View of the Present State of Great Britain: Containing I. The Advantages Which We Enjoy, and Which Arise From Natural, Moral or Political Causes; And Have Occasioned, or Tend to Promote, Our Strength, Wealth, Health and Virtue, and Liberty as a Nation; II. The Disadvantages Which We Labour Under, AThe Author of the following Inquiry has had his thoughts long employed, and will be for some time engaged in arranging and composing a system of Political Philosophy, in which he will have occasion to consider the Strength, Wealth. Health, Virtue, and Liberty of Nations. This work will require several years before the Author can venture to publish it to the world. In the mean time the state of his country is such, that he feels himself called upon to turn his attention from a general to a particular subject. He has therefore drawn up as concisely as possible the following Inquiry, in which he certainly meant to be impartial; and he was obliged to adopt the formality of divisions and subdivisions, that the view, though extensive, might not be obscured by objects seen in groups, or by too great a quantity of matter ill arranged.As, however, many of his readers may dislike this dry, didactic manner, he has taken the liberty of adding an Allegorical Representation of the principal parts of this Inquiry, which may be useful to readers of a certain description: and he hopes to be excused for taking every method to influence the public mind, and to give information, where he thought it was wanted, on a most important subject.In both the didactic and allegorical parts he has purposely avoided whatever he thought could give offence to any person; but he owed it to himself not to go any lengths to please a party, either in office or in opposition.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
