In Moulmein, in Lower Burma, I was hated by large numbers of people — the only time in my life that I have been important enough for this to happen to me.
Crime is simply a convenient monosyllable which we apply to what happens when the brain and the heart come into conflict and the brain is defeated. Hamburger, The Great Judge, An earthquake achieves what the law promises but does not in practice maintain — the equality of all men.
The trouble with the laws these days is that criminals know their rights better than their wrongs. We prefer a meaningless collective guilt to a meaningful individual responsibility.
I've had problems with the police. They confuse power with goodness, and mistake law for justice. Sprading, Freedom and its Fundamentals If the laws could speak for themselves, they would complain of the lawyers in the first place.
Fuchs Bad laws are the worst sort of tyranny. See if the law takes from some persons what belongs to them, and gives it to other persons to whom it does not belong. See if the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime.
In earliest times, there was no elaborate code of law; there was but a simple idea of justice. As the race moved forward, its conception of justice kept pace with the changing standards of customs of the times. As society became more complex, a caste arose whose duty it was to administer justice.
A machine which you go into as a pig and come out of as a sausage. When there are a thousand thieves, it's taxation. Ballentine, A Law Dictionary, Men sin and the law punishes; the law sins and the devil rewards. This man we're hanging—in him lies, No matter what the guilt for which he dies, A living soul, and who can guess its size?
I always have this thought: If we'd made them feel wanted earlier, they wouldn't be wanted now. If the government becomes the lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy.
But imprisonment turns the state into a gay dungeon-master. Mencken The vices of the rich and great are mistaken for error; and those of the poor and lowly, for crimes.
It is just a system. Hayakawa Law is nothing unless close behind it stands a warm living public opinion. A trial is the resolution of a dispute.
Mencken Thieves for their robbery have authority When judges steal themselves. We know what they are, and what they are worth! They are spider webs for the rich and mighty, steel chains for the poor and weak, fishing nets in the hands of the government.
Some circumstantial evidence is very strong, as when you find a trout in the milk. Ballentine, A Law Dictionary, There is no such thing as justice — in or out of court.
Aside from the fact that the State is itself the greatest criminal, breaking every written and natural law, stealing in the form of taxes, killing in the form of war and capital punishment, it has come to an absolute standstill in coping with crime.
It has failed utterly to destroy or even minimize the horrible scourge of its own creation. True social harmony grows naturally out of solidarity of interests.
In a society where those who always work never have anything, while those who never work enjoy everything, solidarity of interests is non-existent; hence social harmony is but a myth Thus the entire arsenal of governments — laws, police, soldiers, the courts, legislatures, prisons — is strenuously engaged in "harmonizing" the most antagonistic elements in society.
This is corruption in reality, give it whatever other name you please. The world has been filled with prisons and dungeons, with chains and whips, with crosses and gibbets, with thumbscrews and racks, with hangmen and heads-men — and yet these frightful means and instrumentalities have committed far more crimes than they have prevented Ignorance, filth, and poverty are the missionaries of crime.
As long as dishonorable success outranks honest effort — as long as society bows and cringes before the great thieves, there will be little ones enough to fill the jails. If you want less crime, you must change the conditions.
Want, rags, crusts, misfortune — all these awake the wild beast in man, and finally he takes, and takes contrary to law, and becomes a criminal.The Poem in Context 'Hope springs eternal in the human breast' (I) writes Alexander Pope in his famous poem An Essay on Man.

DAVID HUME’S greatness was recognized in his own time, as it is today, but the writings that made Hume famous are not, by and large, the same ones that support his reputation now. Leaving aside his Enquiries, which were widely read then as now, Hume is known today chiefly through his Treatise of Human Nature [ ].
