    Excerpt from Patronage Is Power

    It is about one hundred and fifty years ago since Hume wrote a curious essay entitled Whether the British government inclines more to absolute monarchy or to a republic. After carefully balancing the arguments on both sides he came to the conclusion that the tendency was towards absolutism, and he based his conclusion on the fact that the immense and increasing revenue of the Crown gave it a corresponding increase of patronage, and that patronage was power. It must have appeared a strange conclusion at the time, as. The power of the Crown had been shrinking, and it had never before reached so low a point as under the first two Georges. Nevertheless Hume's forecast proved true to the letter. Whatever you do, George, be a king! Was the advice which the Princess of Wales gave to her son. King George was not slow to take the hint, and having dis covered that patronage Was power he became his own minister and established his own little despotism.
