Don’t Sell Liberty for Safety <– Ben Franklin

21 Dec

"Sell not virtue to purchase wealth, nor Liberty to purchase power." -- they trot out the terror bogeyman simply to increase their power over you, through fear


Those who would give up Essential Liberty

to purchase a little Temporary Safety,

deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

— Benjamin Franklin, motto for An Historical Review of the Constitution and Government of Pennsylvania
