Leo Tolstoy

“Men, oppressing others, assure them that the compulsion is necessary in the interest of the government, while the government is indispensable to the liberty and welfare of men–according to this, the oppressors compel men for their own freedom and do wrong to them for their own good.

–Leo Tolstoy, The Slavery of Our Times
