When I meet a government which says to me, ‘Your money or your life,’ why should I be in haste to give it my money?
If a thousand men were not to pay their tax bills this year, that would not be a violent and bloody measure, as it would be to pay them, and enable the State to commit violence and shed innocent blood.
Under a government which imprisons unjustly, the true place for a just man is also a prison.
