On Liberty

A  L  O  H  A !
Even despotism does not produce its worst effects, 
so long as individuality exists under it; and 
whatever crushes individuality is despotism, 
by whatever name it may be called. . .
John Stuart Mill, On Liberty

We the people are the rightful masters 
of both Congress and the courts, 
not to overthrow the Constitution but 
to overthrow the men 
who pervert the Constitution.
          Abraham Lincoln

The love of liberty is the love of others; 
the love of power is the love of ourselves.
                         William Hazlitt

Little Green Heron, Calif

If ever a time should come, 
when vain and aspiring men shall 
possess the highest seats in Government, 
our country will stand in need of its 
experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.
                     Samuel Adams
