FFF Again

From recent editions of the Email Update from the Future of Freedom Foundation:

Monday, June 15, 2009
But it happens that, at the same period and amongst the same nations in which men conceive a natural contempt for the rights of private persons, the rights of society at large are naturally extended and consolidated: in other words, men become less attached to private rights just when it is most necessary to retain and defend what little remains of them.

— Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America [1835]
