A Purgatory of Misery: How Victorian Liberalism Turned a Crisis into a Disaaster

A layman's guide to the worst man made disaster to afflict Great Britain, it's causes and lessons for the future.
Whilst the British elites were celebrating the achievements of Empire, a million people died from lack of food and housing elsewhere in the United Kingdom.
Is it possible for humanity to achieve the Liberal ideal of the greatest good for the greatest number or are Malthus's predictions about the relationship between population and food production about to come true?
