All that is necessary for evil to triumph

American Minute with Bill Federer

“All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing” –Edmund Burke, on the French Revolution

 Edmund Burke is considered the most influential orator in the British House of Commons in the 18th century.

Born January 12, 1729, one of his first notable writings was an anonymous publication A Vindication of Natural Society, 1756, which was a satirical criticism of the deism promoted by Lord Bolingbroke:

“Seeing every mode of religion attacked in a lively manner, and the foundation of every virtue, and of all government, sapped with great art and much ingenuity …  the same engines which were employed for the destruction of religion, might be employed with equal success for the subversion of government.”

Burke criticized how a deist “every day invents some new artificial rule.” 

He described the “unalterable relations which Providence has ordained that everything should bear to every other. These relations, which are truth itself, the foundation of virtue, and consequently, the only measures of happiness.”
