Lysander Spooner

Unless this clear distinction between vices and crimes be made and recognized by the laws, there can be on earth no such thing as individual right, liberty, or property; no such things as the right of one man to the control of his own person and property, and the corresponding and co-equal rights of another man to the control of his own person and property.

Lysander Spooner, “Vices Are Not Crimes,” anonymously in Prohibition a Failure: Or, the True Solution of the Temperance Question (1875), by Dio Lewis.
