"We worship a political idol; Popular Rights, Equal Rights, Inalienable Rights, is the flaming inscription; but under that title we worship man, human nature, ourselves, our idea of speedy perfectibility. . . . This idol may crush us yet, as it has others." The popular Roxbury minister here weighs in on the American slide away from Republican ideals. Sabin 66785.
