Example text

In November 1601 O’Neill and a Spanish army made a joint attack on Mountjoy’s forces. Mountjoy, however, surprised O’Neill as he was deploying his troops at Kinsale, ending Irish resistance and placing all of Ireland under English rule for the first time. O’Neill surrendered, on favorable terms, in March 1603, six days after Elizabeth died. Elizabeth’s government desperately needed more money than it had. In normal times the monarch paid for government out of the customs revenues, rents on crown lands, and other sources of income.

The idea of a contractual arrangement between monarch and people evolved extremely slowly. Economics, however, quickly enters the picture. Asking for whose benefit government exists leads to the issue raised by Sir Epicure Mammon and Dol Common (an aristocrat and a commoner) as to which system best permits the accumulation of private wealth – a question that dominates every modern election. This in turn leads to questions of taxation, and ultimately to the early modern assumption of no taxation without representation.

Soon, Parliament began passing national legislation with the same intent. Ironically, this set the stage for a clash with the supreme governor of the church, James. In 1615, returning from Scotland via Lancashire, James discovered that zealous Puritan magistrates had banned sports on Sunday, believing they defiled the Sabbath. Horrified, James issued a national order, known as the “Declaration of Sports,” protecting the right to dance, practice archery, and follow other harmless recreations on Sunday afternoons.
