Macaulay’s “Southey’s Colloquies on Society” (the abridged version)

Tweet [1]

A friend reminded me that, back in 2000, I published (as a column in The Freeman) this heavily abridged version of Thomas Babington Macaulay’s 1830 essay “Southey’s Colloquies on Society [2].”  I highly recommend that you read the entire essay [3], but – short of reading that remarkably eloquent essay in full – my humble, abridged version will do.
