Ha az emberek hagyják a kormánynak eldönteni, hogy milyen ételeket esznek és milyen gyógyszereket szednek, akkor testük hamarosan annyira sajnálom, mint azokban, akik zsarnokságban élnek.

se le persone lasciano che il governo decida quali alimenti mangiano e quali medicine assumono, i loro corpi saranno presto in uno stato tanto dispiaciuto quanto lo sono le anime di coloro che vivono sotto la tirannia.
