The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 70

Undue Interference

Undue Interference.

What is undue interference with our rights and liberty? I would lay down this general principle and venture to hope that the National Association will endorse it, that when any proposed legislative interference with men's rights and liberty is unnecessary for the common good, or is unequal in its bearing on the whole people, it should be resisted. Equal opportunities for all should be the test principle, and if any favour towards or bias against any particular individual or class be attempted, that should be resisted.

Note.—For reasons against Land Nationalisation and Single Tax, see my letters to the" New Zealand Herald," in its issues dated May 17, and 26, 1892.
