Quotation of the Day…

… is from page 117 of the 1947 “Crofts Classics” edition of John Stuart Mill’s 1859 On Liberty:

The mischief begins when, instead of calling forth the activity and powers of individuals and bodies, it [the government] substitutes its own activity for theirs; when, instead of informing, advising, and, upon occasion, denouncing, it makes them work in fetters, or bids them stand aside and does their work instead of them.
