You can read it HERE.  This fantastic piece of work by Nelson is ripe for some serious discussion - whether it be your interpretation, agreement, disagreement or commentary.

Nelson is currently engaged as a schoolmaster in York, Upper Canada. He is committed to the Fabian movement, and enjoys sketching, painting, and hiking in his spare time. He hopes one day to pilot his own airship.
