“Did you really think
that we want those laws to be observed?” said Dr. Ferris. “We want them broken.
You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up
against — then you’ll know that this is not the age for beautiful gestures.
We’re after power and we mean it. You fellows were pikers, but we know the real
trick, and you’d better get wise to it. There’s no way to rule innocent men.
The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals.
Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many
things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without
breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that
for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor
enforced nor objectively interpreted — and you create a nation of law-breakers
— and then you cash in on guilt. Now, that’s the system, Mr. Rearden, that’s
the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.” – Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged 
"Of course the people don’t want
war. But after all, it’s the leaders of the country who determine the policy,
and it’s always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it’s a
democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist
dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the
bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are
being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing
the country to greater danger."The Nuremberg Trials - Hermann Goering (1946)
“Today there is no enterprise, no transaction, and no service,
however humble, that government does not control. The state regulates what crops a farmer can
grow in his own fields, how many hours office workers can be employed, and even
the words that can be used to describe potato chips. Government dominates education,
communications, transportation, banking, and manufacturing. In short, government now controls the entire
economy.” - Jarret Wollstein
"Of those men who have overturned the
liberties of republics, the greatest number have begun their career by paying
an obsequious court to the people, commencing demagogues and ending
tyrants." - Alexander Hamilton

"He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppresion; for if he violates this duty he estabalishes a precedent that will reach to himself." -Thomas Paine, Common Sense 1776
