Thought for the Day

“The highwayman takes solely upon himself the responsibility, danger, and crime of his own act. He does not pretend that he has any rightful claim to your money, or that he intends to use it for your own benefit . . . Furthermore, having taken your money, he leaves you, as you wish him to do. . . He does not keep ‘protecting’ you by commanding you to bow down and serve him; by requiring you to do this, and forbidding you to do that.”

    ~Lysander Spooner (1808-1887), American Philosopher, Legal Scholar and Abolitionist
