Ayn Rand (Alissa Zinovievna Rosenbaum) (1905-1982) Russian-American writer

“Potentially, a government is the most dangerous threat to man’s rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims. When unlimited and unrestricted by individual rights, a government is man’s deadliest enemy.  It is not as protection against private actions, but against governmental actions, that the Bill of Rights was written.”

 

— Ayn Rand (Alissa Zinovievna Rosenbaum) (1905-1982) Russian-American writer, founder of the philosophy of Objectivism, in ‘Man’s Rights,’ April 1963.
