On Liberty, by John Stuart Mill

And while, in the morality of the best Pagan nations, duty to the State holds even a disproportionate place, infringing on the just liberty of the individual; in purely Christian ethics, that grand department of duty is scarcely noticed or acknowledged . It is in the Koran, not in the New Testament, that we read the maxim – ‘A ruler who appoints any man to an office, when there is in his dominions another man better qualified for it, sins against God and against the State.’
