Monuments by Charles Bradlaugh
Statues and monuments are readily erected to princes pensioned for the merit accruing from accident of birth or fortune of marriage; memorial stones are easily found to record great wealth and huge rent rolls.
For the dead who lived for the poor and died in poverty; for the dead who struggled for freedom, and died, worn out in the effort to burst the shackles theretofore worn by others; for the dead who, living, were not known by fashion, nor honoured by wealth: for these the monuments can only be slowly raised as a new generation inherits, without obstacle, the prizes of social advancement and political freedom, which these dead won with bleeding hearts and wearied brains.
