Benjamin Franklin on the Right to Defend

“The fever of Ambition and a Lust of Power, have long ravaged our Constitution, enfeebled our Laws, and corrupted our Courts of Justice; our Estates and properties, have no permanent or solid Foundation and security; illegal, unconstitutional Instructions are forced upon us; and have obstructed every salutary law, and every rational Measure concerted for our defence, in Obedience to his Majesty’s gracious Orders, and in Conformity to the first Law of Nature.”
