No Such Thing as a Free Lunch

cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out
of freedom.  What one person receives without working for, another
person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to
anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody
else.  When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to
work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the
other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody
else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about
the end of any nation.  You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
– Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931 – 2005
