The error seems not sufficiently eradicated

that the operations of the mind, as well as the acts of the body, are subject to the coercion of the laws

But our rulers can have authority over such natural rights only as we have submitted to them

The rights of conscience we never submitted, we could not submit

We are answerable for them to our God

The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others

... Was the government to prescribe to us our medicine and diet, our bodies would be in such keeping as our souls are now

Thus in France the emetic was once forbidden as a medicine, and the potato as an article of food..


~ Thomas Jefferson ~ (1743-1826)

US Founding Father, drafted the Declaration of Independence, 3rd US President

Source.. Jefferson's Notes on Virginia, Query XVII (1781-1785)






I am now quite sure that 'Tragedy and Hope' was suppressed although
I do not know why or by whom. ~ C.Quigley ~
