Excerpt from History of the French Revolution: Its Causes and Consequences

IN the little work here presented to the public, the faults of the people are more insisted upon than those of the rulers, because it is written for the former, not for the latter, and because, if the latter have a lesson to learn from history, the for mer have a still greater one, and one that, if well learnt by them, will suffice for both. Despotism and tyranny are almost impossible evils in our day, but the love of liberty is so great, that the impor tant task now is to enlighten and to regulate that love, so that, in their headlong career for the attainment of a good, the people place not them selves in the way of the very evils they seek to avoid. They have to learn, that for nations as for individuals, happiness depends upon virtue and wisdom, and that therefore liberty, which is hap piness, does not mean merely freedom from re straint, and cannot be attained through crimes.
