Too Many Laws

Called Unto Liberty, 19th Century Sermons, Brigham Young

The question may arise, “Must we not have law?” We have plenty of it, and sometimes we have a little too much. Legislators make too many laws; they make so many that the people do not know anything about them. Wise legislators will never make more laws than the people can understand.
