A Quote by John Adams on existence, expectation, influence, laws, society, and struggle

In every society where property exists there will ever be a struggle between rich and poor. Mixed in one assembly, equal laws can never be expected; they will either be made by the member to plunder the few who are rich, or by the influence to fleece the many who are poor.

John Adams (1735 - 1826)
