Famous Quote from Albert Jay Nock,

"Here is the Golden Rule of sound citizenship,
the first and greatest lesson in the study of politics:
You get the same order of criminality from any State
to which you give power to exercise it;
and whatever power you give the State to do things FOR you
carries with it the equivalent power to do things TO you."


Albert Jay Nock (more quotes by Albert Jay Nock or books by/about Albert Jay Nock)

(1870-1945) American libertarian author, editor, educational theorist, Georgist, social critic
