Greatest Threat to Freedom

Great quote, found on Walt Williams' home page:

"' The greatest threat to the future of our nation -- to our freedom -- is not foreign military aggression or internal communistic subversion but the growing dependence of the people on a paternalistic government. A nation is no stronger than its people and the best measure of their strength is how they accept responsibility. There will never be a great society unless the materialism of the welfare state is replaced by individual initiative and responsibility.'
-- Charles B. Shuman, The Freeman [February 1977]"
