Thomas Paine on government

“Society in every state is a blessing, but government, even in its best state,  is but a necessary evil;  in its worst state an intolerable one;  for when we suffer or are exposed to the same miseries by a government, which we might expect in a country without government, our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer.”

Thomas Paine, Common Sense, 1776
