If emancipation of the working classes requires their fraternal
conncurrence, how are they to fulfill that great mission with a foreign
policy in pursuit of criminal designs, playing upon national prejudices,
and squandering in piratical wars the people’s blood and treasure? It was
not the wisdom of the ruling classes, but the heroic resistance to their
criminal folly by the working classes of England, that saved the west of
Europe from plunging headlong into an infamous crusade for the propagation
of slavery on the other side of the Atlantic.
