"Mistrust those in whom the urge to punish is strong." Friedrich Nietzche

"Any and all non-violent, non-coercive, non-larcenous, consensual adult behavior that does not physically harm other people or their property or directly and immediately endangers same, that does not disturb the peace or create a public nuisance, and that is done in private, especially on private property, is the inalienable right of all adults. In a truly free and liberty-loving society, ruled by a secular government, no laws should be passed to prohibit such behavior. Any laws now existing that are contrary to the above definition of inalienable rights are violations of the rights of adults and should be made null and void." D. M. Mitchell (from The Myth of Inalienable Rights, at: http://dowehaverights.blogspot.com/)

Gaius Cornelius Tacitus

Tacitus, an ancient Roman scholar, had many wise sayings. The one that I like the best is this one: "The more corrupt the Republic, the more numerous the laws." That kind of explains America today doesn't it. A law for everything. You need to know, or remember, that fascist dictatorships get put into place by one law at a time, not by brute force. Eventually, even the most insensitive liberal will come to understand that his or her rights have been legislated away.
