Mark Twain’s Classical Liberal Wisdom

“The mania for giving the Government power to meddle with the private affairs of cities or citizens is likely to cause endless trouble … & there is great danger that our people will lose that independence of thought & action which is the cause of much of our greatness, & sink into the helplessness of the Frenchman or German who expects his government to feed him when hungry, clothe him when naked … &, in time, to regulate every act of humanity from the cradle to the tomb, including the manner in which he may seek future admission to paradise.”

~Mark Twain~
