For when plunder is abetted by the law, it does not fear your courts, your gendarmes, and your prisons. Perhaps he should consider this proposition: Since all persons seek well-being and perfection, would not a condition of justice be sufficient to cause the greatest efforts toward progress, and the greatest possible equality that is compatible with individual responsibility? The opportunity to develop useful skills is important but not enough.
