While doing some research for an article I intend to write, I ran across some very interesting and relevant quotes in a Wikipedia file about government.

As an example Albert Einstein said, “Nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced.”

Edward R. Murrow said. “A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves.”

Walter E. Williams said, “The essence of government is force, and most often that force is used to accomplish evil ends.”

Joseph Stalin said, “The one who votes decides nothing. The one who counts the vote decides everything.”

Adolph Hitler said, “What luck for the rulers that men do not think.”

Hopefully these few quotations will whet your appetite to investigate the wonderful array of comments relative to government that are contained in this link:

When I read all of the 8 pages of information it came to mind that it would certainly be wonderful if our schools taught this kind of valuable wisdom from insightful voices from the past. I suspect this kind of invaluable knowledge is lacking in our educational system today or is that purposeful.
