Read pages 144 in the textbook (from “Queen and monarch”) to the bottom of page 147.
- Presenters: give your listeners time to read the text and take notes; help your listeners by repeating the key points several times, especially at the end of your presentation. Also, allow time for questions.
- What is the difference between Tory (Conservative) and Whig (Liberal) philosophy? Philosopher Herbert Spencer (1820 – 1903) wrote in The Man Versus the State （1884年） 『人間対国家』:
“Most of those who now pass as Liberals, are Tories of a new type…the intrinsic natures of Toryism and Liberalis… the two political parties at first stood respectively for two opposed types of social organization… these two are definable as the system of compulsory cooperation and the system of voluntary cooperation.” (chapter 1 “The New Toryism”).
