On Slave Mentality

Aristotle says, there are some men who are by nature slaves. He is right. The world is full of knaves and savages whose is a slave mentality—they can be from any strata of society; in fact, many of them are the progeny of high culture. They are the reason why a nation with total freedom can never survive. The model of freedom that may work is the one that is founded on rule of law, and rule of law is founded on a system of authority which cannot be subverted and beyond which there is no appeal. My point is that without a system of authority freedom is impossible.
