I Heartily Accept The Motto -- "That Government Is Best Which Governs Lea

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 I also
believe -- "That government is best which governs not at all": and when men
are really for it that is the kind of government that they will have.
-- Henry David Thoreau
