Excerpt from Federation and Empire: A Study in Politics

The political problem which will be discussed in the following pages is one which affects the well-being of every inhabitant of the United Kingdom. It is, I believe, the supreme problem of the day: one which must perforce be solved ere long, and be solved by the nation. But it is difficult to induce people to consider this problem carefully, because it entails the examination of a number of questions which cannot be presented to them in an attractive form, and it is therefore difficult to persuade them that the national well-being is really involved in it. The mere mention of a "constitutional" question is apt to strike terror into the hearts of most men. They incline to the opinion that such matters are fit subjects for learned discussion amongst lawyers, but that the average elector should be content to vote blue or buff without wearying himself with theories which are, in all probability, the product of the bookworm or the pedant.
