An Inquiry Into The Permanent Causes Of The Decline And Fall Of Powerful And Wealthy Nations Part 2

_Of The External Causes Of Decline.--The Envy And Enmity Of Other
Nations.--Their Efforts, Both In Peace And War, To Bring Wealthy
Nations Down To Their Level_.

The External Causes Of The Decline Of Nations Are Much More Simple
In Themselves Than The Internal Ones, Besides Which, Their Action Is
More Visible; The Way Of Operation Is Such As To Excite Attention, And
Has Made Them Thought More Worthy Of Being Recorded.

The Origin Of Envy And Enmity Are The Same. The Possession Of What Is
Desirable, In A Superior Degree, Is The Cause Of Envy. That Occasions
Injurious And Unjust Proceedings, And Enmity Is The Consequence,
Though Both Originated In The Same Feeling At First, They Assume
Distinct Characteristics In The Course Of Time.
