de boas intenções está o caminho da servidão cheio

Universal Health Care Isn't Worth Our Freedom por Thomas Szasz:
If we persevere in our quixotic quest for a fetishized medical equality we will sacrifice personal freedom as its price. We will become the voluntary slaves of a "compassionate" government that will provide the same low quality health care to everyone.

Henry David Thoreau famously remarked, "If I knew for a certainty that a man was coming to my house with the conscious design of doing me good, I should run for my life." Thoreau feared a single, unarmed man approaching him with such a passion in his heart. Too many people now embrace the coercive apparatus of the modern state professing the same design.

  1. exactamente, a liberdade é o valor supremo. Já um famoso terrorista no seu manifesto a proclamva (Unabomber) como tal. Por ela vale a pena morrer de pé do que viver acorrentado.
