Most Britons still lived and died without encountering anyone whose skin colour was different from their own.

The test of forgiving lies with healing the lingering pain of the past, not with forgetting the past has ever happened.

The function of State coercion is to override individual coercion, and, of course, coercion exercised by any association of individuals within the State. It is by this means that it maintains liberty of expression, security of person and property, genuine freedom of contract, the rights of public meeting and association, and finally its own power to carry out common objects undefeated by the recalcitrance of individual members.
