"When plunder becomes a way of life..."


"When plunder has become a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorises it and a moral code that glorifies it."
~ Frederic Bastiat, from the essay 'The Physiology of Plunder', in his book Economic Sophisms [hat tip Ron Manners]
