If something is being done wrong by the neighbor, it is only a matter of time before it catches up. I also do not buy into the "they don't do nothing". There is usually a lot of work done, just that it is not often seen.
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Benjamin Franklin 1775
Sell not virtue to purchase wealth, nor Liberty to purchase power.
Benjamin Franklin Poor Richard's Almanac1738
