Unless we create an environment where everyone is guaranteed some minimum capabilities through some guarantee of minimum income, education, and healthcare, we cannot say that we have fair competition.

These, the Federal police force an 'informer' psychology, are the hallmarks of the police state and landmarks in the destruction of a free society." - Barry Goldwater

By justice the lawyer generally means the prompt, fair, and open application of impartial rules; but we call ours a Christian civilization, and a Christian conception of justice must be much higher.
