"But when no risk is taken there is no freedom.
It is thus that, in an industrial society,
the plethora of laws made for our personal safety
convert the land into a nursery, and
policemen hired to protect us
become selfserving busybodies."
(1915-1973) British-American philosopher
Tao: The Watercourse Way, 1975
