News Bias, Civil Disobedience, and John Adams’ Rule of Thumb

“I heartily accept the motto, ‘That government is best which governs least;’ and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically. Carried out, it finally amounts to this, which also I believe—‘That government is best which governs not at all;’ and when men are prepared for it, that will be the kind of government which we will have.”Henry David Thoreau(1817-1862) From his essay “On the Duty of Civil Disobedience” 1849

“Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.”George Washington (1732-1799)
