Quote of the day
" Concentrated power is not rendered harmless by the good intentions of those who create it" -Milton Friedman
From the scrolling header at FEE.
Echoing my blog.
And a few selected quotes on good intentions and tyranny:
"The evils of tyranny are rarely seen but by him who resists it."-John Hay (1872)
"The urge to save humanity is almost always a false front for the urge to rule."-H.L. Mencken
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber barons cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."
-C. S. Lewis
