Excerpt from Past and Present Chartism, and Sartor Resartus
The condition of England, on which many pamphlets are now in the course of publication, and many thoughts unpublished are going on in every re ective head, is justly regarded as one of the most ominous, and withal one of the strangest, ever seen in this world. England is full of wealth, of multifarious produce, sup ply for human want in every kind; yet England is dying of ih anition. With unabated bounty the land of England blooms and grows; waving with yellow harvests; thick-studded with work shops, industrial implements, with fifteen millions of workers, understood to be the strongest, the cunningest and the willingest our Earth ever had; these men are here; the work they have done, the fruit they have realised is here, abundant, exuberant on every hand of us: and behold, some baleful at as of Enchant ment has gone forth, saying, Touch it not, ye workers, ye mas ter-workers, ye master-idlers none of you can touch it, no man of ycu shall be the better for it; this is enchanted fruit! On the poor workers such fiat falls first, in its rudest shape; but on the rich master-workers too it falls; neither can the rich master idlers, nor any richest or highest man escape, but all are like to be brought low with it, and made poor' enough, in the money sense or a far fataller one.
