There is, in the nature of sovereign power, an impatience of control that disposes those who are invested with the exercise of it to look with an evil eye upon all external attempts to restrain or direct its operations... This tendency is not difficult to be accounted for. It has its origin in the love of power.
~ Alexander Hamilton
When a Government treats its own people like enemies of the State, the State has become an enemy of the people.
~ Rico (found at Theo's place)
