Joseph Sobran on coercion

We can formulate some general laws of ruling. The more force you use, the more enemies you will make. The more laws you enact, the more criminals you will create. And when you coerce and criminalize too many people who think of themselves as law-abiding, you destroy your legitimacy in their eyes.

~ Joseph Sobran, "The Crisis of Statism," The Free Market, July 1, 1994
