The cult of the omnipotent state has millions of followers in the united States.

Americans of today view their government in the same way as Christians view their God;

they worship and adore the state and they render their lives and fortunes to it.

Statists believe that their lives -- their very being -- are a privilege that the state has given to them.

They believe that everything they do is -- and should be -- dependent on the consent of the government.

Thus, statists support such devices as income taxation, licensing laws, regulations, passports, trade restrictions, and the like..

I do not know why or by whom. ~ C.Quigley ~
