"What's wrong with human law?
Human law... has serious problems. If man is the originator of what is right, equitable and proper, his decisions will always be clouded by self-interest. I know myself well enough to know that I am self-centered, and, left to my own devices, what I think is right will always reflect that fact. Special interest groups constantly lobby politicians to promote their agendas and to advance their causes. As the populace discovers that they can elect political candidates who will buy their votes by giving them handouts in the form of government entitlements, the tax burden on the productive citizens will grow. Laws that originate in the fallen mind of man, like the progressive income tax and other wealth redistribution schemes, are enacted to rob legally those who are America's producers. With human law as a basis for their legislation, our lawmakers will invariably lead us down the path to socialism."
- Robert Andrews, THE FAMILY, 1995
