In later life Coleridge was condescending about his youthful activities as radical and editor. At the time however his political miscellany The Watchman, launched 'that all may know the truth; and that the truth may make us free!', was a brave contribution in the fight for individual liberty and a step in a possible political career. It was subscribed to mainly by Dissenters, and ran for ten issues between March and May 1796. It contains comment, poetry (by Coleridge and by others), reviews and essays, and remains an important witness to Coleridge's sympathies and beliefs in the crucial mid-1790s. Among the poems included of his own is an apocalyptic part of 'Religious Musings', looking forward to the end of the world.
