Philip and the Athenians are the Ministry and the Legislators.
“Athenians, (said Demosthenes, or something like it,) you are Philip’s under-generals; you march where he appoints, you wait upon his nods. Goes he to [Tenedos,] you follow him to [Tenedos]—meantime he is gone to Corinth—each campaign marks out for you the plan of your operations. He sweeps you after him as the substance does the shadow.—Dare you get before him? Dare you cross his path? Oh! no: it would be high-treason.”
