A Founding Father on property

“The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence.” —John Adams

I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: the prescience exhibited by the Founding Fathers never ceases to amaze me.
