Quotable: The Law II

Laws are like cobwebs, for if any trifling or powerless thing fall into them, they hold it fast, but if a thing of any size falls into them it breaks the mesh and escapes. --Anacharsis (ca. 600 BC).

Law and order are always and everywhere the law and order which protect the established hierarchy. --Herbert Marcuse (1898-1979).
