Benjamin Franklin emphasized that without virtue, free societies could not properly function. He said, Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.

To be civilized, and be restrained from the temptation of mob rule, is among the cornerstones of a free society.
