OF MONARCHY AND HEREDITARY SUCCESSION
…As the exalting one man so greatly above the rest cannot be justified
on the equal rights of nature, so neither can it be defended on the
authority of scripture; for the will of the Almighty, as declared by
Gideon and the prophet Samuel, expressly disapproves of government by
kings. All anti-monarchical parts of scripture have been very smoothly
glossed over in monarchical governments, but they undoubtedly merit the
attention of countries which have their governments yet to form.
RENDER UNTO CAESAR THE THINGS WHICH ARE CAESAR’S is the scripture
doctrine of courts, yet it is no support of monarchical government, for
the Jews at that time were without a king, and in a state of vassalage
to the Romans.
…As to usurpation, no man will be so hardy as to defend it; and that
William the Conqueror was an usurper is a fact not to be contradicted.
The plain truth is, that the antiquity of English monarchy will not
bear looking into.
But it is not so much the absurdity as the evil of hereditary
succession which concerns mankind. Did it ensure a race of good and
wise men it would have the seal of divine authority, but as it opens a
door to the FOOLISH, the WICKED, and the IMPROPER, it hath in it the
nature of oppression. Men who look upon themselves born to reign, and
others to obey, soon grow insolent; selected from the rest of mankind
their minds are early poisoned by importance; and the world they act in
differs so materially from the world at large, that they have but
little opportunity of knowing its true interests, and when they succeed
to the government are frequently the most ignorant and unfit of any
throughout the dominions….
