The power of III

Summum ius summa iniuria--More law, less justice

24 January 2011

Quote of the Day 1/24

When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion 

- when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing 

- when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors 

- when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don't protect you against them, but protect them against you 

- when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice 

- you may know that your society is doomed.

Ayn Rand

  1. Yep. Rand had it. "Atlas Shrugged" should be read by everyone, though the monkeys would dismiss it. Might convert a few of them though...
