LIBERTY – WHAT LIBERTY? [BENDISCIOLI, Faustino.]
Quadro ossia saggio epilogato del Sistema di liberta’ proclamato dai Francesi.
An impassioned tract attacking the claims of a new life of liberty promoted in Europe after the French Revolution, very rarely to be found in any of the three editions published in the same year.
The character of a soldier; by Philanthropos.
Sole edition of this anonymous attack on the use of the army in the Peterloo massacre of 1819, and, furthermore, in any foreign adventure. The soldier, a ‘bloody automaton’ has ‘his origin in barbarous times’, and a standing army is ‘a legalized banditti: it is worse than an illegal banditti, inasmuch as it robs and murders under the name of law’. As war is a game of Kings, and the army their toy, ‘the governments of Spain, Portugal, and America alone can be identified with men; all the other kingdoms of the earth may be characterized as bloody, brutal, ferocious despotisms’. The only hope for these counties is that the soldier become a citizen.
