The poorest man may in his cottage bid defiance to all the forces of the Crown. It may be frail — its roof may shake — the wind may blow through it — the storm may enter — the rain may enter — but the King of England cannot enter — all his force dares not cross the threshold of the ruined tenement! William Pitt
Government controls us via taxes and regulation on just about everything, even telling us what we may or may not ingest. Always it’s done ‘for our own good‘ and it extends even to things like taking raw milk across state lines.
Government rightly is said to be out of control when a person doesn’t own his/her own body and control what is put into it.
