Excerpt from Beacon Lights of History, Vol. 2 There is not much in ancient governments and laws to interest us, expect such as were in harmony with naturals justice, and were designed for the welfare of all classes in the States. A jurisprudence founded on the edicts of absolute kings, or on the regulations of a priestly caste, is necessarily partial, and may be unenlightened. But those laws which are gradually enacted for the interests of the whole body of the people, - for the rich and poor, the powerful and feeble alike, - have generally been the result of the great and diverse experiences, running through centuries, the work of wise men under constitutional forms of government. The jurisprudence of nations based equity is a growth or development according to public wants and necessities, especially in centuries having popular liberty and right, as in England and the United States.
