Burke wrote during the panic that followed the French Revolution, “must not find the principles of natural subordination by art [i.e., artfully specious arguments] routed out of their minds. They must respect that property of which they cannot partake. They must labour to obtain what by labour can be obtained; and when they find, as they commonly do, the success disproportioned to the endeavour, they must be taught their consolation in the final proportions of eternal justice.” One can’t help reflecting on how nakedly all of these people declared a position which privileged people and their political allies today are careful to disguise.43 Damrosch, Leo.
