A Quote by Lao Tzu on justice, morality, center, tao, and circle

Throw away holiness and wisdom,
and people will be a hundred times happier.
Throw away morality and justice,
and people will do the right thing.
Throw away industry and profit,
and there won't be any thieves.

If these three aren't enough,
just stay at the center of the circle
and let all things take their course.

Lao Tzu (c.604 - 531 B.C.)

A Quote by Frédéric Bastiat on justice, law, freedom, and liberty

It is in the nature of men to react against the iniquity of which they are the victims. When, therefore, plunder is organized by the law for the profit of the classes who make it, all the plundered classes seek, by peaceful or revolutionary means, to enter into the making of the laws. These classes, according to the degree of enlightenment they have achieved, can propose two different ends to themselves when they thus seek to attain their political rights: either they may wish to bring legal plunder to an end, or they may aim at getting their share of it.

A Quote by Frédéric Bastiat on society, justice, law, morality, and ethics

Legal plunder has two roots: One, as we have just seen, is in human selfishness; the other is in false philanthropy.

A Quote by Frédéric Bastiat on society, justice, law, morality, and ethics

No society can exist if respect for the law does not to some extent prevail; but the surest way to have the laws respected is to make them respectable. When law and morality are in contradiction, the citizen finds himself in the cruel dilemma of either losing his moral sense or of losing respect for the law, two evils of which one is as great as the other, and between which it is difficult to choose.
