Оригинал (текста "Цепей рабства" на русском в сети найти не удалось):
WHILE sports, festivals, merriments, shews, entertainments of every kind, engross the mind, people by degrees lose sight of liberty, and think not of it any more. By entirely neglecting to think of liberty, the true idea of it is obliterated, and false notions take place. To men always engrossed by their pleasures or private affairs, liberty is soon no more than the mean of amassing wealth without obstacles, of possessing it with safety, and making merry without opposition. Thus the love of independency, for want of fuel, is extinguished in every breast.
