Quotation of the Day…

in Country Problems, Current Affairs, Philosophy of Freedom

… is from page 78 of the 2003 edition of Benjamin Constant’s brilliant 1815 work Principles of Politics Applicable to All Government (Dennis O’Keefe, trans., Etienne Hoffman, ed.):

Arbitrary government is to moral life what plague is to the body.

DBx: Yes.

Oui. Si. Ja. Da. Sim. Ye.

The plague that today threatens humanity with devastation is not Covid-19; it is not a physical pathogen. It is, rather, the toleration of the arbitrary and suffocating government diktats slammed down on humanity in the name of protecting humanity from Covid-19.

Humanity is being pummeled not by the coronavirus but, instead, by Covid Derangement Syndrome.
