From the “Two-Edged Proverbs” Dept.

The nation which has been incapable of governing and ordering itself, and has delivered itself up to the slavery of its own lusts, is itself delivered over, against its will, to other masters.

—John Milton (1608-1674), “The Second Defence of the People of England.”
