One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.

When buying and selling are controlled by legislation, the first things to be bought and sold are legislators.

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

My brother Bob doesn't want to be in government; he promised Dad he'd go straight.
