Example text

In 1695, three years before The Case for Ireland was published, the first of the Penal Laws was enacted by the Dublin Parliament in which Molyneux sat. Another Act to Prevent the Further Growth of Popery became law in 1704. This prohibited the inheritance of land by Catholics. Sons who wished to realise their natural rights would have to convert. WILLIAM MOLYNEUX AND THE CASE FOR IRELAND 35 Molyneux’s constitutional history of Ireland made copious references to 500 years of case law in disputing the subordination of Ireland – meaning Protestant Ireland – to the English Parliament.

In effect, Molyneux argued that their development would benefit from a greater degree of autonomy, especially in being allowed diversion and recreation, than Locke seemed to sanction. He vehemently disagreed with Locke’s statement that ‘a child should never be suffered to have what he craves, so much as speaks for, much less as he cries for it’ and another that ‘in all wants of fancy and affection, they should never, if once declared, be hearkened to, or complied with’. He argued that what was ‘delightful to the child’ were ‘diversions of his own choice’.

By the time a million Irish had emigrated such numbers were far too few to alter the underlying political arithmetic. CHAPTER THREE William Molyneux and the case for Ireland William Molyneux (1656–98) was a man of many parts assembled to fit the seventeenth-century father-of-the-Enlightenment archetype.

His grandfather, Sir Thomas Molyneux, arrived in Ireland in 1576 and was appointed by Queen Elizabeth as Ireland’s Chancellor of the Exchequer.
