Calhon The legacy of the four British folkways in early America remains the most powerful determinant of a voluntary society in the United States today. The interplay of these four “freedom ways” has created an expansive pluralism which is more libertarian than any unitary culture alone could be. The Road to the Revolution • Economic – American merchants wanted freedom from restrictive policies of British mercantilism. • Ideological – Americans shared the basic political principles of individual liberty and feared a strong central government. • Social – Not only the question of home rule but who should rule at home. The revolutionary movement was never a united front but rather a series of coalitions that formed, dissolved, and reformed. In sum, beginning in 1763, Britain challenged the traditional autonomy of the colonies with its imperial reforms and new taxes. The colonists responded, nullifying first those policies and then their tie to Britain itself. Then they created a republic where an empire had been. People of the Revolution Charles Townshend, chancellor of the exchequer, shown here in a 1765 painting by Joshua Reynolds. William Pitt, 1st Earl of Chatham by Richard Brompton, 1772. John Trenchard & Thomas Gordon Cato’s Letters (1720-1723) • Power overwhelms liberty. • Power seeks more power, becomes corrupt unless checked by a virtuous and vigilant people. • Greece and Rome fell prey to the power of tyrants and dictators. Why? 1) Impoverished by war 2) High taxes 3) Standing army 4) Worthless and wicked men were favored with public office. 5) Luxury, idleness, extravagance weakened the moral fiber of the nation. 6) Those in power tried to provoke people to violence to justify new oppression.
