Who, you may ask, was James Burgh?
From the Wiki
James Burgh (1714–1775) was a British Whig politician whose book Political Disquisitions set out an early case for free speech and universal suffrage: In it, he writes, "All lawful authority, legislative, and executive, originates from the people." He has ben judged "one of England's foremost propagandists for radical reform".
Burgh also ran a dissenting academy and wrote on subjects such as educational reform. One of his first books was Thoughts on Education (1747).
Yeah, another Scotsman. Always stirring up some trouble, those Scots...
