Edmund Burke on the ‘Unfittest Person on Earth’

Daily Dabble in the Classics, Edmund Burke

A powerful voice on the other side of the Atlantic, yet on this side so far as his sentiments regarding many aspects of the American struggle for liberty against her Mother Country, was an Irish born member of Parliament by the name of Edmund Burke. In his 1775  “On Conciliation with America”, Burke boldly declared before his fellow members of Parliament what should have been the  obvious truth regarding the immoral and outright hypocritical nature of the Mother Country’s persecution of its children (the colonists) in America. He said:

“An Englishman is the unfittest person on earth to argue another Englishman into slavery.

A profound thought …. fit for American consumption today.
