OLS Quote of the Week: Richard Pipes

For the next seven days the featured quote here at On Liberty Street is:
“[In a democracy] The Rights to property and the liberties associated with them are subverted by a variety of devices, some open and seemingly constitutional, others oblique and of dubious legality: the state, it turns out, takes even as it gives”.  
            --- Harvard History Professor, Richard Pipes: Property and Freedom (1999).
