    One crucial approach that Burke himself developed was historiographical. These printed speeches, though anchored to specific occasions, and certainly intended to have a practical effect in British politics, were also meant to embody Burke's thought in a durable form.

The answer may depend on your own connexions, and on how you conceive them. No body of men will be argued into slavery. Be that as it may, when he fears that his titled relative, Neville, is going to be trapped by a gold digger, Morgan intends to secure Neville. At Trinity he founded a debating society, where he developed his oratorical technique on theological, moral and political topics, as well as commenting on the economic and literary life of Ireland in a periodical run by himself and his friends.

The difference made by participation lay not least in his reasons for applying his mind, and consequently in how he did so. Opposed to the tactics of coercion, the Rockingham group in their short administration of —66 repealed the Stamp Act but asserted the imperial right to impose taxation by the Declaratory Act.

He argued strongly against unrestrained royal power and for the role of political parties in maintaining a principled opposition capable of preventing abuses, either by the monarch, or by specific factions within the government. A spirit of innovation is generally the result of a selfish temper and confined views.

Rockingham's unexpected death in July and replacement with Shelburne as Prime Minister put an end to his administration after only a few months, but Burke did manage to introduce two Acts.
