Dalrymple: The Aim of Untold Millions

“It is a mistake to suppose that all men… want to be free. On the contrary, if freedom entails responsibility, many of them want none of it… The aim of untold millions is to be free to do exactly as they choose and for someone else to pay when things go wrong.”

– Theodore Dalrymple, Life at the Bottom
