“Liberty produces wealth, and wealth destroys liberty.”
The consequences of too much of a good thing are not a good thing for the good thing.
Liberty allows capitalism; capitalism creates wealth; wealth leads to power which soon concentrates among an elite and in turn disenfranchises all of their liberty.
“Under socialism everyone (except the leaders) is equal. As in equally fucked” in terms of individual liberties. — William Wisher.
