“He who is unfit to serve his fellow citizens wants to rule them.”
Ludwig von Mises, Bureaucracy
“The champions of socialism call themselves progressives, but they recommend a system which is characterized by rigid observance of routine and by a resistance to every kind of improvement. They call themselves liberals, but they are intent upon abolishing liberty. They call themselves democrats, but they yearn for dictatorship. They call themselves revolutionaries, but they want to make the government omnipotent. They promise the blessings of the Garden of Eden, but they plan to transform the world into a gigantic post office. Every man but one a subordinate clerk in a bureau.”
Ludwig von Mises, Bureaucracy

Ludwig von Mises, Bureaucracy
“The alternative to the rule of law is the rule of despots.”
Ludwig von Mises, Bureaucracy
