Wikiquote:Quote of the Day/January 29, 2009

From Wikiquote

"No tyranny is so irksome as petty tyranny: the officious demands of policemen, government clerks, and electromechanical gadgets." – Edward Abbey

Simple: No bad government annoys people as much as small bad government: annoying things that policemen, government clerks and machines tell people to do.
