An Excerpt:  "

OF THE ORIGIN AND DESIGN OF GOVERNMENT IN GENERAL.

WITH CONCISE REMARKS ON THE ENGLISH CONSTITUTION

Some writers have so confounded society with government,

as to leave little or no distinction between them;

whereas they are not only different, but have different origins.

Society is produced by our wants, and government by our wickedness;

the former promotes our POSITIVELY by uniting our affections,

the latter NEGATIVELY by restraining our vices. The one

encourages intercourse, the other creates distinctions.

The first a patron, the last a punisher."
