Thomas Paine

thomas paine
Society in every state is a blessing, but Government, even in its best state, is but a
necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one: for when we suffer, or are exposed to the same miseries by a Government, which we might expect in a country without
Government, our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer. -- Thomas Paine
