I know everyone takes the piss out of her, and all, but ...

"There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible to live without breaking laws."
-– Ayn Rand

Ring any bells?

Rand had a great knack of spinning a sentence to make things crystal clear. That's awesome.

Society only needs one law: Do not aggress against your neighbour's person or property, through force or fraud!

Does anybody even know how many laws exist in this country currently? Over/Under on 100,000?
