Quote of the day 02/19/2015

This is a quote from Bastiat’s The Law, written in 1850. Bastiat is referring to established institutions at the time.

If you suggest a doubt as to the morality of these institutions, it is said directly-‘You are a dangerous experimenter, a utopian, a theorist, a despiser of the laws; you would shake the basis upon which society rests.’

When I read this quote I immediately decided to replace the instances of “you” with “I” because this is what I consider my perspective to be.

I am a dangerous experimenter, a utopian, a theorist, a despiser of the laws; I would shake the basis upon which society rests.

This is what I wish to do with my life, “shake the basis upon which society rests”.
