I would prefer to suffer under the oppression of another free man, who, by the better use of his freedom has taken greater advantage of it than I, than to suffer under the oppression of government, which has the power to deny me my freedom altogether.
Someday, he may fall by his own hand or by mine, and I may rise. On that day, wouldn't he prefer to fall to another free man, than to the powers of government? Surely he took the place of the free man before him by besting him, as I he, and so too shall I prefer to fall. Such is the Darwinian way of free markets and free people. It is for us to choose, and no one else.
