Jeremy Bentham was an early advocate for universal suffrage, economic and religious freedom, gender equality, abolition of slavery, decriminalisation of homosexuality, and animal rights. Just before his death in 1832, he wrote an innovative proposal to establish South Australia. It was based on a public-private partnership involving free settlers.
