Study Limitations We will focus here only on what is directly relevant to the arrest and trial of Jesus, beginning with marginally the intentions of the Jewish leaders and ending with the leading away to the Crucifixion. We will exclude, except where tangently related:
The whole Universe one system of Society. Nothing made wholly for itself, nor yet wholly for another. The happiness of animals mutual. Reason or Instinct operates alike to the good of each individual. Reason or Instinct operates also to Society in all animals.
How far Society carried by Instinct;--how much farther by reason. Of that which is called the state of nature.
Reason instructed by Instinct in the invention of the arts;--and in the forms of Society. Origin of political societies;--origin of Monarchy;--patriarchal government. Origin of true Religion and Government, from the same principle of Love;--origin of Superstition and Tyranny, from the same principle of Fear.
The influence of Self-love operating to the social and public good. Restoration of true Religion and Government on their first principle. Various forms of each, and the true end of all.
But most be present, if we preach or pray. Look round our world; behold the chain of love Combining all below and all above. See plastic Nature working to this end, The single atoms each to other tend, Attract, attracted to, the next in place, Form'd and impell'd its neighbour to embrace.
See matter next, with various life endued, Press to one centre still, the gen'ral good; See dying vegetables life sustain, See life dissolving vegetate again. All forms that perish other forms supply By turns we catch the vital breath, and dieLike bubbles on the sea of Matter borne, They rise, they break, and to that sea return.
Nothing is foreign; parts relate to whole; One all-extending, all-preserving, soul Connects each being, greatest with the least; Made beast in aid of man, and man of beast; All serv'd all serving: Had God, thou fool!
Who for thy table feeds the wanton fawn, For him as kindly spreads the flowery lawn.
Is it for thee the lark ascends and sings? Joy tunes his voice, joy elevates his wings. Is it for thee the linnet pours his throat? Loves of his own and raptures swell the note. The bounding steed you pompously bestride Shares with his lord the pleasure and the pride.
Is thine alone the seed that strews the plain? The birds of Heav'n shall vindicate their grain. Thine the full harvest of the golden year? Part pays, and justly, the deserving steer. The hog that ploughs not, nor obeys thy call, Lives on the labours of this lord of all. Know Nature's children all divide her care; The fur that warms a monarch warm'd a bear.
And just as short of Reason he must fall, Who thinks all made for one, not one for all. Grant that the pow'rful still the weak control; Be Man the wit and tyrant of the whole: Nature that tyrant checks; he only knows, And helps.
Say will the falcon, stooping from above, Smit with her varying plumage, spare the dove? Admires the jay the insect's gilded wings?
Or hears the hawk when Philomela sings? For some his Int'rest prompts him to provide, For more his Pleasure, yet for more his Pride: All feed on one vain patron, and enjoy Th'extensive blessing of his luxury. That very life his learned hunger craves, He saves from famine, from the savage saves; Nay, feasts the animal he dooms his feast, And till he ends the being makes it blest; Which sees no more the stroke, or feels the pain, Than favour'd man by touch ethereal slain.

Summary and Introduction The Emperor Gaius Aurelius Valerius Diocletianus (A.D. ) put an end to the disastrous phase of Roman history known as the "Military Anarchy" or the "Imperial Crisis" (). Toby Young. The Fall of the Meritocracy. The left loathes the concept of IQ -- especially the claim that it helps to determine socio-economic status, rather than vice versa-- because of a near-religious attachment to the idea that man is a piece of clay that can be moulded into any shape by society.
