As such, this guide aims to explain 1 why you should care about writing a powerful cover letter, 2 what you should include in it, and 3 how you should structure it. Why does a good cover letter matter? Sadly, we must admit that part of the decision-making process of whether to accept a manuscript is based on a business model.
Notwithstanding the military establishments in the several kingdoms of Europe, which are carried as far as the public resources will bear, the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms. If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government.
This proportion would not yield, in the United States, an army of more than twenty-five or thirty thousand men.
To these would be opposed a militia amounting to near half a million of citizens with arms in their hands, officered by men chosen from among themselves, fighting for their common liberties, and united and conducted by governments possessing their affections and confidence.
It may well be doubted, whether a militia thus circumstanced could ever be conquered by such a proportion of regular troops.
The fundamental law of the militia is, that it be created, directed, and commanded by the laws, and ever for the support of the laws. Nor is there anything in the common law of England The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed.
A tolerable expertness in military movements is a business that requires time and practice. It is not a day, nor a week nor even a month, that will suffice for the attainment of it. To oblige the great body of the yeomanry and of the other classes of the citizens to be under arms for the purpose of going through military exercises and evolutions, as often as might be necessary to acquire the degree of perfection which would entitle them to the character of a well regulated militia, would be a real grievance to the people and a serious public inconvenience and loss.
This quote by Hamilton sheds some much needed light on the term 'Well-Regulated' mentioned in the 2nd Amendment. It does not mean what it does today, such as regulation through restrictive legislative activity.
It meant at the time that something would be working as it should, properly calibrated and in good order. If these rights are well defined, and secured against encroachment, it is impossible that government should ever degenerate into tyranny. It is among the most sacred, and alike necessary to nations and to individuals.
And their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories, as tend to render them independent on others, for essential, particularly for military supplies. These Swords are accompanied with an injunction not to unsheathe them for the purpose of shedding blood, except it be for self defense, or in the defense of their Country and its rights; and in the latter case, to keep them unsheathed, and prefer falling with them in their hands, to the relinquishment thereof.
Remember officers and Soldiers, that you are Freemen, fighting for the blessings of Liberty that slavery will be your portion, and that of your posterity, if you do not acquit yourselves like men. Fortunately for us our relative situation requires but few. The same circumstances which so effectually retarded, and in the end conspired to defeat the attempts of Britain to subdue us, will now powerfully tend to render us secure.GAY.

Or encourage her to journal and write about what interests her, even if it’s just a few sentences a day. Don’t rush. • Stuart Jeffries (Football is back to oppress us, as Karl Marx might have said, Journal, 9 August) might have a point that football is diverting the revolutionary energy of the masses, although I suspect that Arsenal fan Jeremy Corbyn would say it is encouraging discontent with the system.
Jeffries goes too far, though, in suggesting that cricket .
