Here is the quote: "The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience."
I have Googled and Yahoo'd and all to know avail. What is the source of this quote? I'm using it in an essay and need the citation. That pesky MLA format.
**Bonus points if you provide the source in MLA format.
