Excerpt from The English in Ireland in the Eighteenth Century, Vol. 3 of 3
Strength brings security, and security negligence. Civilization and prosperity introduce luxurious habits and extravagant expenditure. The high persons and privileged classes to whom the care of the Common wealth has been intrusted forget their duties in their pleasures. They believe that the State exists only for themselves. They pass unequal laws, and the people are Oppressed, and clamor naturally to share the powers which can be no longer trusted in the old hands.
