It is the mission of the next Conservative Government to build the Responsible Society.
Institutions – government, churches, industries, and the like – have properly no other function than to contribute to human freedom and in so far as they fail, on the whole, to perform this function, they are wrong and need reconstruction.
The punishment which the wise suffer who refuse to take part in the government, is to live under the government of worse men.
Government proposes, bureaucracy disposes. And the bureaucracy must dispose of government proposals by dumping them on us.
What is ominous is the ease with which some people go from saying that they don’t like something to saying that the government should forbid it. When you go down that road, don’t expect freedom to survive very long.
