The oppressor no longer acts directly and with his own powers upon his victim.  No, our discretion has become too refined for that.  The tyrant and his victim are still present, but there is an Government intermediate person between them, which is the Government–that is, the Law itself.

by Steve MacDonald June 26, 2012

The law (justice) can never be philanthropic.  It cannot guarantee property of any kind to anyone because the law has no property to give.  The law does not create property.  The Law does not summon property out of thin air-where none previously existed.  The Law can only take from someone else what is theirs. It […]
