William Cobbett, military corruption and London radicalism in the early 1790s

Durey, M. (1987) William Cobbett, military corruption and London radicalism in the early 1790s. Proceedings of the American Philosophical Society, 131 (4). pp. 348-366.

Abstract

No man has a right to pry into his neighbour's private concerns; and the opinions of every man are his private concerns, while he keeps them so; that is to say, while they are confined to himself, his family and particular friends; but, when he makes these opinions public; when he once attempts to make converts; whether it be in religion, politics, or anything else; when he once comes forward as a candidate for public admiration, esteem or compassion, his opinions, his principles, his motives, every action of his life, public or private, become fair subject of public discussion.
