...
-348908
"[T]he most common and durable source of factions has been the various and unequal distribution of property. Those who hold and those who are without property have ever formed distinct interests in society. Those who are creditors, and those who are debtors, fall under a like discrimination.

With equal, nay with greater reason, bodies of men, are unfit to be both judges and parties at the same time;? ?neither moral nor religious motives can be relied on as an adequate control.
