Robert A. Heinlein:

“I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.”

      As a kid in 1950s, the science fiction novels of Robert Heinlein were tops with me, and of the many books he wrote, “Star Ship Troopers” (1959) was my favorite because of his novel idea of a future world where only veterans can vote and hold political office.

    Citation for the quote, please Wabbit if you would be so kind. (Tks

    P.S. Ronbo – know it well (SST) and have re-read it so many times in the 50 years since it was written (50 years, think about that!) and have long been of the opinion that it should not only be ‘The Bible of the US Marines’, as it was once called with the usual derision that the leftards use to malign any who may think differently, but also that of those who who appreciate Heinlien,s precience but also would like such a rational socio/polotical solution come to pass.

      G’day Seneca. Sorry, I can’t give it to you. The quote appeared at the top of a blog I visited, and as is my wont I pasted it to a sticky note for later use. (this desktop is covered in them).
      I’ll see if I can find it later today.

  3. Spot on quote. So very true.

    Welcome, TPH. :smile: It certainly resonates with me–I refuse to obey obviously bad laws unless I absolutely must. To do anything else is to surrender our dignity as sovereign individuals.
