Excerpt from The Works of the Right Honourable Edmund Burke, Vol. 4

It is not only agreed but demanded, by the right honourable gentlemanfi and by thofe who act with him, that awho/e fyllem ought to be produced; that it ought not to be an half men/are; that it ought to be no palliative; but a legiflative provifion, vigorous, fubfiantial', and effeétive. I believe that no man who underhands thefub ject can doubt for a moment, that thofe muft be the conditions of any thing deferving the name of a reform in the Indian government; that any thing {hort of them would not only be delufive, but, in this matter which admits no medium noxious in the extreme.

Об авторе (2016)

Born in Ireland in 1729, Edmund Burke was an English statesman, author, and orator who is best remembered as a formidable advocate for those who were victims of injustice. He was the son of a Dublin lawyer and had also trained to practice law. In the 1760s, Burke was elected to the House of Commons from the Whig party. Burke spent most of his career in Parliament as a member of the Royal Opposition, who was not afraid of controversy, as shown by his support for the American Revolution and for Irish/Catholic rights. His best-known work is Reflections on the French Revolution (1790). Some other notable works are On Conciliation with the American Colonies (1775) and Impeachment of Warren Hastings (1788). Edmund Burke died in 1797.
