they are all peaceably inclined…(What does this phrase mean?)
When I translate this phrase (word by word) , I don’t get the understood meaning …
the context is here…so I hope to clarify that phrase to me …thanks a lot

“Law never made men more just; and, by means of their respect for
it, even the well-disposed are daily made the agents of injustice. A
common and natural result of an undue respect for law is, that you
may see a file of soldiers, colonel, captain, privates and all,
marching in admirable order over hills to the wars, against their
wills, indeed, against their common sense and consciences. They
have no doubt that it is a damnable business in which they are concerned;
they are all peaceably inclined. Now, what are they? Men
at all? Or small movable forts, at the service of some unscrupulous
man in power?

They realize that their job (being a man of war) is a sin. However, they would like for peace at any time as opposed to war.

I think…

Hope this clears things up a bit. :slight_smile:

“Peaceably” argh! What a horrible adverb. (Not that I like adverbs in general.)

thanks for you Xakota and astamoore, I really don’t know what he means by this phrase
but I guess he means they are peaceably involved…
