Liberty According to Jefferson

I came across both of these quotes from Thomas Jefferson, the architect of the Declaration of Independence. They ring surprisingly true, especially today. It’s interesting to note that, by all appearances, Jefferson felt that the “least” government was the best government.

When the people fear their government, there is tyranny;

When the government fears the people, there is liberty.

This one perhaps is too true to print:

A Government big enouth to give you everything you want

is strong enough to take everyting you have.

 

Those of you you have been watching the HBO miniseries, John Adams, will recall the presence of Thomas Jefferson in the series. What a treat to watch history unfold … again.
