Whenever You Try to Do Good with Someone Else’s Money, You Are Committed to Using Force


Whenever you try to do good with someone else’s money, you are committed to using force. How can you do good with somebody else’s money, unless you take it away from them? The only way you can take it away from them is the threat of force: you have a policeman, tax collector, who comes and takes it from them. – Milton Friedman
