Quote from Lysander Spooner 

"The principle that the majority have a right to rule the minority,
practically resolves all government into a mere contest between two
bodies of men, as to which of them shall be masters, and which of them
slaves; a contest, that -- however bloody -- can, in the nature of
things, never be finally closed, so long as man refuses to be a slave."
