Question:

What message is Young trying to convey here? Whom does he mean when he speaks ‘of slaves’? Who is he criticising? What dangers does he sense in the situation of 1787?

Answer:

Here, Arther Young is conveying the message that any social system based on injustice will not stay long and its results can be terrible for the exploiters. Young mentioned slaves as peasants, servants and landless sharecropper. They were the underprivileged people of French society at that time. Young is criticising the social system, the nobleman and clergy. In 1787, he sensed the danger that exploited sections of the society would revolt against the government.
