George Mason: Slavery

"Slavery discourages arts and manufactures."
August 22

"The poor despise labor when performed by slaves."
August 22

"Every master of slaves is born a petty tyrant. They bring the judgment of heaven on a Country. As nations can not be rewarded or punished in the next world they must be in this. By an inevitable chain of causes & effects providence punishes national sins, by national calamities."
August 22
