Стр. 14 - If anything invades my social rights, certainly the traffic in strong drink does. It destroys my primary right of security, by constantly creating and stimulating social disorder. It invades my right of equality, by deriving a profit from the creation of a misery I am taxed to support.
Стр. 14 - ... number of things which it admits to be innocent, Under the name of preventing intemperance, the people of one English colony, and of nearly half the United States, have been interdicted by law from making any use whatever of fermented drinks, except for medical purposes: for prohibition of their iale is in fact, as it is intended to be, prohibition of their use.
Стр. 14 - All matters relating to thought, opinion, conscience, appear to me,' he says 'to be without the sphere of legislation; all pertaining to social act, habit, relation, subject only to a discretionary power vested in the State itself, and not in the individual, to be within it.
Стр. 14 - social rights" the like of which probably never before found its way into distinct language: being nothing short of this— that it is the absolute social right of every individual that every other individual shall act in every respect exactly as he ought; that whosoever fails thereof in the smallest particular violates my social right and entitles me to demand from the legislature the removal of the grievance. So monstrous a principle is far more dangerous than any single interference with liberty;...
Стр. 329 - Not only does a bureaucracy thus tend to undergovernment, in point of quality ; it tends to overgovernment, in point of quantity. The trained official hates the rude, untrained public. He thinks that they are stupid, ignorant, reckless — that they cannot tell their own interest — that they should have the leave of the office before they do any thing. Protection is the natural inborn creed of every official body ; free trade is an extrinsic idea, alien to its notions, and hardly to be assimilated...
Стр. 14 - Selling fermented liquors, however, is trading, and trading is a social act. But the infringement complained of is not on the liberty of the seller, but on that of the buyer and consumer; since the State might just as well forbid him to drink wine, as purposely make it impossible for him to obtain it. The Secretary, however, says, 'I claim, as a citizen, a right to legislate whenever my social rights are invaded by the social act of another.
Стр. 14 - social rights', the like of which probably never before found its way into distinct language: being nothing short of this — that it is the absolute social right of every individual, that every other individual shall act in every respect exactly as he ought; that whosoever fails thereof in the smallest particular, violates my social right, and entitles me to demand from the legislature the removal of the grievance.

Стр. 14 - social rights," the like of which probably never before found its way into distinct language — being nothing short of this — that it is the absolute social right of every individual, that every other individual shall act in every respect exactly as he ought; that who >oever fails thereof in the smallest particular, violates my social right, and entitles me to demand from the legislature the removal of the grievance.
Стр. 14 - ... which assert an unlimited right in the public not only to prohibit by law everything which it thinks wrong, but in order to get at what it thinks wrong, to prohibit any number of things which it admits to be innocent.
Стр. 14 - Alliance," as it terms itself, which has been formed for this purpose, has acquired some notoriety through the publicity given to a correspondence between its secretary and one of the very few English public men who hold that a politician's opinions ought to be founded on principles. Lord Stanley's share in this correspondence is calculated to strengthen the hopes already built on him by those who know how rare...
