 Utility, Property, and Political Participation: James Mill on Democratic Reform, by Murray Milgate
Ricardo expressed his doubts to Mill as to whether "the Government and laws of one state of society" were well "adapted for another state of society" (Ricardo 1951-73, 7:22).
His doubts arose from an obvious consideration, namely, that the "people of England, who are governors, have an interest opposed to that of the people of India, who are the governed, in the same manner as the interest of despotic sovereign is opposed to that of his people" (ibid., 239).
He was led, therefore, to wonder whether the "salutory dread of insurrection" was all that remained to check "misrule and oppression" in that country (ibid., 241).
