Walter E. Williams, All It Takes Is Guts

“Democracy and liberty are not the same. Democracy is little more than mob rule, while liberty refers to the sovereignty of the individual.”
Walter E. Williams

“How does something immoral, when done privately, become moral when it is done collectively? Furthermore, does legality establish morality?

Legality, alone, cannot be the talisman of moral people.”
Walter E. Williams, All It Takes Is Guts
