Liberty Lesson

“The utopian schemes of leveling [redistribution of the wealth] and a community of goods are as visionary and impracticable as those which vest all property in the Crown. [They] are arbitrary, despotic, and, in our government, unconstitutional.”
~ Samuel Adams, Letter to Dennys De Berdt, Massachusetts agent in London (January 12, 1768)
