"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

"We, the people, are locked in a death grapple and nothing our leaders offer, or are willing to offer, mitigates our troubles. The people must think because the people alone can act.”
Henry George, 1839-1897
