A random quote

Lots of unremarkable sections highlighted in books 1-25.

Then, I got to what is probably my favourite passage from Atlas Shrugged at #26, and it is this:

There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted—and you create a nation of law-breakers—and then you cash in on guilt.

Sound familiar, at all? Anyone?
