strious people are bound in con science to give up all they have, without raising a hand in their defense, to lie down in abject submission before the oncoming hosts of a ruthless and pitiless invader, whose object is plunder and death, is to take leave of reason.Our reason teaches us that a wise and beneficent Creator, in order to enable man to reach his destiny, has dowered him at birth with sacred and inviolable rights, which none can infringe without a violation of justice. Amongst these gifts may be mentioned the right to live, to lead a family life, and acquire property. The State is instituted to safeguard and guarantee these rights to its citizens, and is bound in consequence to in fiict penalties on those who violate the established order of justice. But what is to be done when the rights of one nation are outraged by another? Is there no redress? Is 'a sovereign and injured power to be more helpless than an individual? Must a whole people see its civilization swept away, its liberties de stroyed, its possessions plundered, without the right or power to check its foe? There has never been but one answer to these questions, and never will be. In defense of country the patriot 's sword will leap from its scabbard, every man will become a soldier, and whoever shirks his duty will be branded as a traitor. Might is given to defend the right.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
