To recapitulate the extraordinary: in five years private competition captured between a third an a half of the American letter-carrying business, drove postage down to one-eighth of its former maximum, and brought the United States Post Office within sight of extinction.

9 Leo Strauss, Natural Right and History p. 103:

But the city would seem to be a conventional or fictitious unity. For what is natural comes into being and exists without violence. All violence applied to a being makes that being do something which goes against its grain, i.e., against its nature. But the city stands or falls by violence, compulsion, or coercion. There is, then, no essential difference between political rule and rule of a master over his slaves. But the unnatural character of slavery seems to be obvious: it goes against man's grain to be made a slave or to be treated as a slave.
