“Mr. de Lamartine once wrote to me thusly: ‘Your doctrine is only half of my program. You have stopped at liberty; I go on to fraternity.’ I answered him: ‘The second half of your program will destroy the first.’” (Frederic Bastiat, Fraternity refers to the slogan of the French Revolution “Liberte, Egalite, Faternite” or Liberty, Equality, and Brotherhood which in part exploited the masses on to revolution seeking to enforce all three by government decree. The Law, p. 22. 1850.)
