The Tories: A Warning From History

O Cromwell! O Ireton! How hath a little time and successe changed the honest shape of so many Officers!
-The Hunting of the Foxes, John Lilburne, 21 March 1649

They undertook merely to quiet and please us (like children with rattles) till they had done their main work… that so they might have no opposition from us, but that we might be lulled asleep in a fool’s paradise with thoughts of their honest intentions till all was over…
-The Legall Fundementall Liberties, Lilburne, 8 June 1649
