“I know that enslaved peoples do nothing but boast of the peace and repose  they enjoy in their chains….But when I see free peoples sacrificing pleasure, repose, wealth, power, even life itself for the sake of preserving that one good which is so disdained by those who have lost it; when I see animals, born free and hating captivity, breaking their heads against the bars of their prison; when I see multitudes of naked savages scorn European pleasures and brave hunger, fire, the sword and death, simply to preserve their independence, I feel that it is not for slaves to argue about liberty.” — Rousseau,Discourse on Inequality
