James Cooper

American writer, historian
All that a good government aims at... is to add no unnecessary and artificial aid to the force of its own unavoidable consequences, and to abstain from fortifying and accumulating social inequality as a means of increasing political inequalities.More James Cooper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Individuality is the aim of political libertyMore James Cooper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The disposition of all power is to abuses, nor does it at all mend the matter that its possessors are a majority. Unrestrained political authority, though it be confided to masses, cannot be trusted without positive limitations, men in bodies being but an aggregation of the passions, weaknesses and interests of men as individuals.More James Cooper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Property is desirable as the ground work of moral independence, as a means of improving the faculties, and of doing good to others, and as the agent in all that distinguishes the civilized man from the savage.More James Cooper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Those families, you know, are our upper crust, not upper ten
thousand.More James Cooper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
