A founder in 1830 of the National Colonization Society, Charles Tennant (1796 1873) advocated government support for emigration to Britains colonies as a means of alleviating poverty at home and boosting the workforce overseas. Briefly representingMoreA founder in 1830 of the National Colonization Society, Charles Tennant (1796 1873) advocated government support for emigration to Britains colonies as a means of alleviating poverty at home and boosting the workforce overseas.

Briefly representing St Albans in Parliament, he later wrote treatises on contemporary political and financial questions, notably arguing for the abolition of income tax in The Peoples Blue Book (1857). Also published anonymously, the present work, which appeared in 1864, offers a critique of John Stuart Mills Utilitarianism (1863).

Tennant argues that happiness does not consist in utility, but rather in conformity to divine will as described by the Christian faith. Nevertheless, Tennant says, we ought to promote utility, as this is likely to be conducive to happiness. He then applies this view in detail to contemporary problems of government, domestic policy, taxation, colonies, dependencies, and foreign policy.
