Liberty or Slavery

  • “The sole end for which mankind are warranted, individually or collectively, in interfering with the liberty of action of any of their number, is self-protection.”
    — John Stuart Mill
  • “Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God. I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death.”
    — Patrick Henry, speech to the Virginia Convention, Richmond, Virginia, March 23, 1775
