The author of 'The Hireling and the Slave' warns of European threats to American Republicanism. England is even "more than formerly, hostile to the forms of Republican government." The governments of Europe "are more uniformly aristocratic and monarchical in their temper, and breathe the spirit of factitious rank, or privileged orders, of established church, of the excellence of monarchy, and the indefeasible rights of princes." Such dangers are not merely military; the greatest threat lies in American cultural attitudes, which hanker excessively after European finery and the trappings of monarchy.
