"If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one." – Robert LeFevre
Puts a whole new interpretation on Madison's, "If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself."
