Government is Force <- Upton Sinclair

07 Jan

Government is not reason, it is not eloquence — it is force!

Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.

Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action.

— Cited by Upton Sinclair, in The Cry for Justice (1915), as having been said by George Washington
