A quote for our times….

I came across this today; I believe it stems from a classic text of many years ago:

"When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that justifies it."

-Frederic Bastiat

As I often do, I suggest you read it slowly, and more than once, to let the words sink in as they relate to present times.

Pogo has this quote filed under '”us.”
