“The state -- or, to make
matters more concrete, the government -- consists of a gang of men exactly like
you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the
business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office.
Their principal device to that end is to search out groups who pant and pine
for something they can't get, and to promise to give it to them. Nine times out
of ten that promise is worth nothing. The tenth time it is made good by looting
'A' to satisfy 'B'. In other words, government is a broker in pillage, and
every election is a sort of advanced auction on stolen goods.” – H.L. Mencken
"In such a performance you may lay the
foundation of national happiness only in religion, not by leaving it doubtful
"whether morals can exist without it," but by asserting that without
religion morals are the effects of causes as purely physical as pleasant
breezes and fruitful seasons." - Benjamin
Rush, letter to John Adams, 1811
and woman in society has one big duty.
That is to take care of his or her own self. This is a social duty. For, fortunately, the matter stands so that
the duty of making the best of one’s self individually is not a separate thing
from the duty of filling one’s place in society, but the two are one, and the
latter is accomplished when the former is done.”
“The danger of minding other people’s business is twofold. First, there is the danger that a man may
leave his business unattended to; and, second, there is the danger of an
impertinent interference with another’s affairs. The ‘friends of humanity’ almost always run
into both dangers.” - William Graham
“If you lose all respect for
the rights of others, and with it your own self-respect; if you lose your own
sense of right and fairness; if you lose your belief in liberty, and with it
the sense of your own worth and truth; if you lose your own will and self-guidance
and control over your own lives and actions, ...what can all the gifts of
politicians give you in return?” - Auberon

"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
