Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

Mary Wollstonecraft

Nature having made men unequal, by giving stronger bodily and mental powers to one than to another, the end of government ought to be, to destroy this inequality by protecting the weak. Instead of which, it has always leaned to the opposite side, wearing itself out by disregarding the first principle of its organization.

Mary Wollstonecraft, An Historical and Moral View of the French Revolution (1794), p. 7.
