"The Chief Thing, therefore, which Lawgivers and other wise Men, that have laboured for the Establishment of Society, have endeavour'd, has been to make the People they were to govern, believe, that it was more beneficial for every Body to conquer than indulge his Appetites and much better to mind the Publick than what seem'd his private Interest."
— Mandeville, Bernard (bap. 1670, d. 1733)
