law

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.

A Quote by Newton on liberty, freedom, law, government, and law

All of the services commonly thought to require the State—from the coining of money to police protection to the development of law in defense of the rights of person and property—can be and have been supplied far more efficiently and certainly more morally by private persons. The State is in no sense required by the nature of man; quite the contrary.

A Quote by Frédéric Bastiat on freedom, liberty, society, law, happiness, and peace

Try to imagine a system of labor imposed by force that is not a violation of liberty; a transfer of wealth imposed by force that is not a violation of property rights. If you cannot do so, then you must agree that the law cannot organize labor and industry without organizing injustice.

A Quote by Frank on government, politics, judicial, legal, law, and misconduct

It is well past time that the American people realize they can hold those in the Judicial Branch of our government - whether federal or state, whether judicial, prosecutorial or defensive in nature - responsible for misconduct and injecting politics into government. It is time for American's to wage an intellectual revolution against, not only political correctness, moral relativism and multiculturalism but the practice of placing politics before government.

A Quote by Jopo on life, law, senses, methods, morals, values, and universe

The moment my methods crystalize, is the moment I will have lost my senses, for no moral or value can ever be solidifed in an ever changing universe.

A Quote by Jimmy Carter on law, justice, lawyers, judges, liberty, respect, and jimmy carter

“The law is not the private property of lawyers, nor is justice the exclusive province of judges and juries. In the final analysis, true justice is not a matter of courts and law books, but of a commitment in each of us to liberty and mutual respect.”

Jimmy Carter (1924 -)
