A Quote by John J. Miller on belief, change, economics, judgment, laws, lawyers, police, politicians, religion, slavery, society, and words

Laws are only words, words written on paper, words that change on society's whim and are interpreted differently daily by politicians, lawyers, judges, and policemen. Anyone who believes that all laws should always be obeyed would have made a fine slave catcher. Anyone who believes that all laws are applied equally, despite race, religion, or economic status, is a fool.
