Thomas Jefferson: "He has waged cruel War against human Nature itself, violating its most sacred Rights of LIfe and Liberty..."
A little-known passage from Thomas Jefferson's first draft of the Declaration of Independence.
Among the charges against King George III:
"He has waged cruel War against human Nature itself, violating its most sacred Rights of Life and Liberty in the Persons of a distant People who never offended him, captivating and carrying them into Slavery in another Hemisphere, or to incur miserable Death, in their Transportation thither. This piratical Warfare, the opprobrium of infidel Powers, is the Warfare of the Christian King of Great Britain.
He has prostituted his Negative for Suppressing every legislative Attempt to prohibit or to restrain an execrable Commerce, determined to keep open a Markett where Men should be bought and sold, and that this assemblage of Horrors might want no Fact of distinguished Die."
-- Thomas Jefferson (Online Library of Liberty)
