Nous apercevons, depuis plusieurs siècles, que les conditions s'égalisent, et nous découvrons en même temps que les mœurs s'adoucissent. Ces deux choses sont-elles seulement contemporaines, ou existe-t-il entre elles quelque lien secret, de telle sorte que l'une ne puisse avancer sans faire marcher l'autre? Il y a plusieurs causes qui peuvent concourir à rendre les mœurs d'un peuple moins rudes; mais, parmi toutes ces causes, la plus puissante me paraît être l'égalité des conditions. L'égalité des conditions et l'adoucissement des mœurs ne sont donc pas seulement à mes yeux des événements contemporains, ce sont encore des faits corrélatifs. Lorsque les fabulistes veulent nous intéresser aux actions des animaux, ils donnent à ceux-ci des idées et des passions humaines. Ainsi font les poètes quand ils parlent des génies et des anges. Il n'y a point de si profondes misères, ni de félicités si pures qui puissent arrêter notre esprit et saisir notre cœur, si on ne nous représente à nous-mêmes sous d'autres traits. Ceci s'applique fort bien au sujet qui nous occupe présentement. Lorsque tous les hommes sont rangés d'une manière irrévocable, suivant leur profession, leurs biens et leur naissance, au sein d'une société aristocratique, les membres de chaque classe se considérant tous comme enfants de la même famille, éprouvent les uns pour les autres une sympathie continuelle et active qui ne peut jamais se rencontrer au même degré parmi les citoyens d'une démocratie. Mais il n'en est pas de même des différentes classes vis-à-vis les unes des autres.

Parmi les objets nouveaux qui, pendant mon séjour aux États-Unis, ont attiré mon attention, aucun n'a plus vivement frappé mes regards que l'égalité des conditions. Je découvris sans peine l'influence prodigieuse qu'exerce ce premier fait sur la marche de la société; il donne à l'esprit public une certaine direction, un certain tour aux lois; aux gouvernants des maximes nouvelles, et des habitudes particulières aux gouvernés. Bientôt je reconnus que ce même fait étend son influence fort au-delà des mœurs politiques et des lois, et qu'il n'obtient pas moins d'empire sur la société civile que sur le gouvernement: il crée des opinions, fait naître des sentiments, suggère des usages et modifie tout ce qu'il ne produit pas. Ainsi donc, à mesure que j'étudiais la société américaine, je voyais de plus en plus, dans l'égalité des conditions, le fait générateur dont chaque fait particulier semblait descendre, et je le retrouvais sans cesse devant moi comme un point central où toutes mes observations venaient aboutir. Alors je reportai ma pensée vers notre hémisphère, et il me sembla que j'y distinguais quelque chose d'analogue au spectacle que m'offrait le Nouveau-Monde. Je vis l'égalité des conditions qui, sans y avoir atteint comme aux États-Unis ses limites extrêmes, s'en rapprochait chaque jour davantage; et cette même démocratie, qui régnait sur les sociétés américaines, me parut en Europe s'avancer rapidement vers le pouvoir. De ce moment j'ai conçu l'idée du livre qu'on va lire. Une grande révolution démocratique s'opère parmi nous, tous la voient; mais tous ne la jugent point de la même manière. Les uns la considèrent comme une chose nouvelle, et, la prenant pour un accident, ils espèrent pouvoir encore l'arrêter; tandis que d'autres la jugent irrésistible, parce qu'elle leur semble le fait le plus continu, le plus ancien et le plus permanent que l'on connaisse dans l'histoire.

Je pense qu'il n'y a pas, dans le monde civilisé, de pays où l'on s'occupe moins de philosophie qu'aux États-Unis. Les Américains n'ont point d'école philosophique qui leur soit propre, et ils s'inquiètent fort peu de toutes celles qui divisent l'Europe; ils en savent à peine les noms. Il est facile de voir cependant que presque tous les habitants des États-Unis dirigent leur esprit de la même manière, et le conduisent d'après les mêmes règles; c'est-à-dire qu'ils possèdent, sans qu'ils se soient jamais donné la peine d'en définir les règles, une certaine méthode philosophique qui leur est commune à tous. Échapper à l'esprit de système, au joug des habitudes, aux maximes de familles, aux opinions de classe, et, jusqu'à un certain point, aux préjugés de nation; ne prendre la tradition que comme un renseignement, et les faits présents que comme une utile étude pour faire autrement et mieux; chercher par soi-même et en soi seul la raison des choses; tendre au résultat sans se laisser enchaîner au moyen; et viser au fond à travers la forme, tels sont les principaux traits qui caractérisent ce que j'appellerai la méthode philosophique des Américains. Que si je vais plus loin encore, et que parmi ces traits divers je cherche le principal, et celui qui peut résumer presque tous les autres, je découvre, que dans la plupart des opérations de l'esprit, chaque Américain n'en appelle qu'à l'effort individuel de sa raison. L'Amérique est donc l'un des pays du monde où l'on étudie le moins, et où l'on suit le mieux les préceptes de Descartes. Cela ne doit pas surprendre.

The Manifesto of the Communist Party was drafted as its party program by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels in Brussels at the order of the second congress of the League of Communists (December 2-8, 1847) The Manifesto marked the end of a year-long discussion within the League of the Just about the objectives and methods of proletarian emancipation and implied the conclusion of its transformation into the League of Communists. In Marxist literature this publication, which marked a milestone in the theoretical evolution of Marx and Engels and reflected the crucial principles of their world view in a relatively self-contained and complete form, is held to be the birth certificate of scientific socialism, which was fundamentally distinct from utopian socialism. Brought into its final version by Marx, it undoubtedly was the most brilliant and widely read writing of Marx and Engels; thanks to its down-to-earth analysis of society with its concise and cogent portrayal of a humanizing-liberating perspective for workers and the urgent demands for a revolutionary transformation of society. It was the most effective and most widely read publication of the modern working-class movement.

Bastiat asserted that the only purpose of government is to defend the right of an individual to life, liberty, and property. From this definition, Bastiat concluded that the law cannot defend life, liberty and property if it promotes socialist policies inherently opposed to these very things. In this way, he says, the law is perverted and turned against the thing it is supposed to defend.

It is an undertaking of some degree of delicacy to examine into the cause of public disorders.   If a man happens not to succeed in such an inquiry, he will be thought weak and visionary; if he touches the true grievance, there is a danger that he may come near to persons of weight and consequence, who will rather be exasperated at the discovery of their errors than thankful for the occasion of correcting them. It also includes speeches and essays on political issues.
