"In all Free States, the evil to be avoided is tyranny; that is to say, the summa im-
perii,' or unlimited power, solely in the hands of one, the few, or the many."-SWIFT.

“Constant experience shows us, that every man invested with power is apt to abuse it.
Ile pushes on till he comes to something that limits him. To prevent the abuse of power,
it is necessary that by the very disposition of things, power should be a check to power."
-MONTESQUIEU.
