Necessity has no law.
Our masters rely on our labor to make them wealthy, on our children for cannon fodder in war and on our collective chants for adulation. They would otherwise happily slip us rat poison. When they retreat into their inner sanctums, which they keep hidden from public view, they speak in the cold words of manipulation, power and privilege, words that expose their visions of themselves as entitled and beyond the reach of morality or law.
Do we operate under a system of equal justice under law? Or is there one system for the average citizen and another for the high and mighty?
Ted Kennedy, 1932 – 2009
The harshest tyranny is that which acts under the protection
of legality and the banner of justice.
Revolt and terror pay a price. Order and law have a cost.
Carl Sandburg, 1878 – 1967
A fine is a tax for breaking the law; a tax is a fine for obeying the law.
