PITHY QUOTE FROM Martineau: British History

Open quotes
Wise men knew that this machinery would, in a few years, employ many times more than the number of persons at first turned adrift: but this truth did not feed those who were hungering now; and it is no wonder that their misery avenged itself on the machinery which was doing their work, and, as they declared, stealing their bread.
