A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on society, state, government, coercion, liberty, and freedom

I look upon an increase of the power of the State with the greatest fear, because although while apparently doing good by minimizing exploitation, it does the greatest harm to mankind by destroying individuality, which lies at the root of all progress. We know of so many cases where men have adopted trusteeship, but none where the State has really lived for the poor.

Gandhi (1869 - 1948)
