One of the most remarkable examples of existing under difficulties is that presented by the Irish Nation. Warfare would seem to be the dominant note in Nature…. Nature has a short way with her vanquished.

They were defeated, and on their defeat Nature banished and obliterated them utterly in obedience to her universal law ‘win or die.’
