Quote of the day.......

"Whenever a single definite object is made

the supreme end of the State

be it the advantage of a class

the safety of the power of the country

the greatest happiness of the greatest number or

the support of any speculative idea

the State becomes for the time inevitably absolute.

-- Lord Acton
[John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton] (1834-1902).
