QoTD – 9 August 2010 – John Galt

The only proper functions of a government are: the police, to protect you from criminals; the army, to protect you from foreign invaders; and the courts, to protect your property and contracts from breach or fraud by others, to settle disputes by rational rules, according to objective law. But a government that initiates the employment of force against men who had forced no one, the employment of armed compulsion against disarmed victims, is a nightmare infernal machine designed to annihilate morality: such a government reverses its only moral purpose and switches from the role of protector to the role of man’s deadliest enemy, from the role of policeman to the role of a criminal vested with the right to the wielding of violence against victims deprived of the right of self-defense. Such a government substitutes morality for the following rule of social conduct: you may do whatever you please to your neighbor, provided your gang is bigger than his. ~Said by John Galt of Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

This is something that is already coming to pass. The government is well on its way.
