As A Supplement:

Quotes by Thomas Jefferson that, I think, best represent what I am Trying to say:

"A departure from principle in one instance becomes a precedent
for a second; that second for a third; and so on, till the bulk of
the society is reduced to be mere automatons of misery, to have
no sensibilities left but for sin and suffering." --To Samuel Kercheval, 1816

"It is to secure our rights that we resort to government at all."
--To Francois D'Ivernois, 1795

"It can never be too often repeated, that the time for fixing
every essential right on a legal basis is while our rulers are
honest, and ourselves united." -- Notes on
Virginia, 1782

"The ground of liberty is to be gained by inches, and we must be
contented to secure what we can get from time to time and
eternally press forward for what is yet to get. It takes time to
persuade men to do even what is for their own good." --To Charles Clay, 1790

"Our rulers can have authority over such natural rights only as we
have submitted to them." -- Notes on Virginia,
1782

"What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not
warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit
of resistance?" --To William Stephens Smith, 1787
