Max Igan – Crime and Government

Crimes were committed to punish crimes, and crimes were committed to prevent crimes. The world has been filled with prisons and dungeons, with chains and whips and crosses and gibbets, with thumbscrews and racks and hangmen and headsmen. And yet all these things have committed far more crimes than they have prevented. Ignorance, filth, and poverty are the missionaries of crime, and as long as dishonorable success outranks honest effort, as long as society bows and cringes before the great thieves, then there will be little ones enough to fill the jails. – Robert G. Ingersoll
