Troubling Quotes for Troubled Times

 

Concerning Law and Order

 

“The strange American ardor for passing laws, the insane belief in regulation and punishment, plays into the hands of the reformers, most of them quacks themselves. Their efforts, even when honest, seldom accomplish any appreciable good.”

“Oppressive laws do not destroy minorities; they simply make bootleggers.”

“One of the main purposes of laws in a democratic society is to put burdens upon intelligence and reduce it to impotence. Ostensibly, their aim is to penalize anti-social acts; actually their aim is to penalize heretical opinions.”

“The laws are innumerable and idiotic, but only prisoners in the penitentiaries and persons under religious vows ever obey them.”
