“The great inlet by which a color for oppression has entered the world is by one man’s pretending to determine concerning the happiness of another, and by claiming to use what means he thinks proper in order to bring him to a sense of it. It is the ordinary and trite sophism of oppression.” Edmund Burke (quoted by Richard John Neuhaus in First Things February 2003, saying he learned of it from a correspondent named Nino Langiulli)
