Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

Auberon Herbert

Men quickly learn to look upon what is done for them by the state as a right and grumble that what is given is not given in fuller measure. It is a common cry: “We do not want charity, but state employment.” State employment is charity, only with all the healing grace left out of it.

Auberon Herbert, as reprinted in the first edition of The Right and Wrong of Compulsion by the State, 1885.
