Quotations about aggression

History teaches that wars begin when governments believe the price of aggression is cheap.

 - Ronald Reagan

It is not the business of government to make men virtuous or religious, or to preserve the fool from the consequences of his own folly. Government should be repressive no further than is necessary to secure liberty by protecting the equal rights of each from aggression on the part of others, and the moment governmental prohibitions extend beyond this line they are in danger of defeating the very ends they are intended to serve.

 - Henry George

Sigmund FreudI am inclined to suppose that children cannot find their way to acts of sexual aggression unless they have been seduced previously. The foundation for a neurosis would accordingly always be laid in childhood by adults.

 - Sigmund Freud

Alfred AdlerThe truth is often a terrible weapon of aggression. It is possible to lie, and even to murder, for the truth.

 - Alfred Adler
