“It is with government, as with medicine. They have both but a choice of evils. Every law is an evil, for every law is an infraction of liberty: And I repeat that government has but a choice of evils: In making this choice, what ought to be the object of the legislator? He ought to assure himself of two things; first, that in every case, the incidents which he tries to prevent are really evils; and secondly, that if evils, they are greater than those which he employs to prevent them.” Jeremy Bentham
