„But coercion never produces harmony. How harmonious are people who are being forced to act against their will? Most likely, those who are coerced will resent those who benefit from the coercion. This sets group against group; it doesn't bring them together.“

—  Harry Browne, Part One, chapter 5, page 24

„Strength, the American way, is not manifested by threats of criminal prosecution or police state methods.
Leadership is not manifested by coercion, even against the resented.“

Greatness is not manifested by unlimited pragmatism, which places such a high premium on the end justifying any means and any methods. Declaration of Conscience‎ (1972), p. 293; also misquoted as ending with "the end justifying any means and any measures."
