Thomas Paine 1737-1809 1774 emigrated to Philadelphia 1787 Returned to England. 1791-2 Published Rights of Man 1.5 million sold in England. Forced to flee to France, became a deputy in the French National Convention. Disillusioned by situation in

France, returned to US in 1802. http://www.billofrightsinstitute.org/Instructional/Resources/ ConstitutionDay/FoundersGallery/index.htm It is a perversion of terms to say that a charter gives rights. It operates by a contrary effect - that of taking rights away. Rights are inherently in all the inhabitants; but charters, by annulling those rights in the majority, leave the right, by exclusion, in the hands of

a few...The only persons on whom they operate are the persons whom they exclude...Therefore, all charters have no other than an indirect negative operation. Thomas Paine The Rights of Man A closer look at the term mark I wander thro each charterd street Near where the charterd thames does flow And mark in every face I meet Marks of weakness, marks of woe

George III 1760-1820 http:// www.royalinsight.g ov.uk/output/ Page2944.asp mind forgd suggests self-imposed restrictions. [I]t is not necessary to use force to constrain the convict to good behaviour, the madman to calm, the worker to work ... The efficiency of power, its

constraining force have, in a sense, passed over to the other side - to the side of its surface of application. He who is subjected to a field of visibility, and who knows it, assumes responsibility for the constraints of power; he makes them play spontaneously upon himself; he inscribes in himself the power relation in which he simultaneously plays both roles; he becomes the principal of his own subjection. Foucault, Michel. Panopticism Discipline and Punish 1975

If he believes in Justice, he will submit unconditionally to the rules of the Law, and may even protest when they are violated, sign petitions, take part in a demonstration etc... the ideological representation of ideology is itself forced to recognise that every subject endowed with a consciousness and believing in the ideas that his consciousness inspires in him and freely accepts, must act according to his desires, must therefore inscribe his own ideas as a free subject in the actions

of his material practice. If he does not do so, that is wicked. Louis Althusser Ideology and Ideological State Apparatuses 1977 From Proverbs of Heaven and Hell: Sooner murder an infant in its cradle than nurse unacted desires.
