Excerpt from The Glory and Shame of England, Vol. 1
I do not expect much good-will from the British Government, or most of the British aristocracy, for writing this book. I am working for the emancipation of whole nations, and the eleva tion of all men. England has always been working for the overthrow of rival nationalities, and the political subjection of men. England fights for the few - I for the many. She for Aristocracy - I for Democracy. She for the present - I for the future. No wonder we-should not agree any too well. In justice to myself, however, it should be always held'in mind, that, in speaking of England, I mean the Government and the ruling classes of the British empire - not the British people, for whom I entertain all the sympathies which spring unbidden from the common fountains of kindred, language, laws and religion.
