The instant formal government is abolished, society begins to act. A general association takes place, and common interest produces common security.
Society is produced by our wants and government by our wickedness
Society in every state is a blessing, but government, even in its best stage, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one.
Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived.
It is of the utmost danger to society to make it (religion) a party in political disputes.
