Lift your lamp beside the golden door, Break not the golden rule, avoid well the golden calf, know; not all that glitters is gold, and laissez faire et laissez passer [let do and let pass] but as a shining sentinel, hesitate not to ring the bell, defend the gates, and man the wall

Elizabeth Warren's nobody in this country who got rich on his own Speech Sept 21, 2011

“I hear all this ‘well this is class warfare’ well whatever. No, there is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody. You built a factory out there? Good for you, but I wanna be clear, you moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn’t have to worry that murauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did. Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea, God bless, keep a good hunk of it, but part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next gent who comes along.”
