On Government

‎”Not only does the action of Governments not deter men from crimes; on the contrary, it increases crime by always disturbing & lowering the moral standard of society. Nor can this be otherwise, since always & everywhere a Government, by its very nature, must put in the place of the highest, eternal, religious law (not written in books but in the hearts of men, & binding on every one) its own unjust, man-made laws, the object of which is neither justice nor the common good of all but various considerations of home & foreign expediency.”
~ Leo Tolstoy ~
