The subject praises public tranquility; the citizen praises the liberty of private individuals. The former prefers the security of possessions; the latter that of persons. The former has it that the best government is the one that is most severe; the latter maintains that the best government is the one that is mildest. This one wants crimes to be punished, and that one wants them prevented. The former think it a good thing to be feared by their neighbor; the latter prefer to be ignored by them. The one is content so long as money circulates; the other demands that the people have bread. - Jean-Jacques Rousseau thoughts?
