Auberon Herbert

Do we wish to make men juster in their daily intercourse with each other? We shall certainly not succeed by acting more unjustly in return, for however unjustly a man may use the indirect power that he possesses, his injustice will always be surpassed by those who violate the universal rights of men by applying for force directly.

— Auberon Herbert, The Right and Wrong of Compulsion by the State [1885]
