Best Line on Government I Have Read Today

When demanding assistance from the state people forget that it is a demand upon the other citizens merely passed on through the government, but believe they are making a demand upon a sort of Fourth Dimension which is supposed to be able to supply the wants of all and sundry to their hearts' content without any individual person havnig to bear the burden.

Wilhelm Ropke cited in Jim Buchanan (2007) p. 136.
