Thomas Jefferson

A quote from Thomas Jefferson

What has destroyed liberty and the rights of man in every government which has ever existed under the sun? The generalizing and concentrating all cares and powers into one body, no matter whether of the autocrats of Russia or France, or of the aristocrats of a Venetian Senate.

— to Joseph C. Cabell [February 2nd, 1816]
