A rule of thumb

Jayant Bhandari, responding to the news that financial incentives will be offered by the Indian government to encourage inter-caste marriages:
"I cannot but shudder at the social corruption this policy will cause."
The more governments, with their powers of coercion, get involved in anything - be it the economy or our social lives - the more opportunity there is for corruption. This is another reason why plans like this aren't very bright.
