Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

Auberon Herbert

I am strongly and steadily opposed to all plans of state employment. Besides the old fatal objection that we have no right to compel some to pay for others, such works interfere with the regular labor market, they are badly supervised and badly conducted and therefore tend to demoralize the men employed; they often keep labor collected at certain spots when it should be dispersed, discouraging the men from following and finding other work.

Auberon Herbert, from the appendix to the 1885 edition of The Right and Wrong of Compulsion by the State.
