 Garrison, William Lloyd Criticism and Essays
Garrison's written and oratorical works overwhelmingly demonstrate his radical approach to the major reform issues he recognized in nineteenth-century American society: moral laxity, the consumption of alcohol, deficiencies in women's rights, institutional corruption, and above all, the practice of slavery.
Garrison expanded his arguments to include other reformist inclinations, including his desire to promote the religious doctrine of perfectionism—the urge to emulate the perfected moral state of Jesus Christ—and his belief in nonresistance to violence—pacifism, or nonviolent civil disobedience—in the pages of his newspaper the Liberator.
In the work, Garrison laid bare the flawed nature of such a scheme that would presume to resolve the problem of slavery by sending American fls to a continent where they would largely be received as outsiders and members of the underclass.
