Quote of the Day

  Happy 131st Birthday Ludwig

Ludwig Von Mises

“The main political problem is how to prevent the police power from becoming tyrannical. This is the meaning of all the struggles for liberty”

Quote of the Day

Thomas Sowell


  “One of the sad signs of our times is that we have demonized those who produce, subsidized those who refuse to produce, and canonized those who complain.”

Quote of the Day

Jarret Wollstein

  ” In Washington, D.C. it costs $7,000 in city fees to open a pushcart. In California, up to eighty federal and state licenses are required to open a small business. In New York, a medallion to operate a taxicab costs $150,000. More than 700 occupations in the United States require a government license. Throughout the country, church soup kitchens for the homeless are being closed by departments of health. No wonder so many people turn to crime and violence to survive.”

Quote of the Day

Emma Goldman

 

  “The individual is the true reality of life. A cosmos in himself, he does not exist for the State, nor for that abstraction called “society,” or the “nation,” which is only a collection of individuals.”

Quote of the Day

Frederic Bastiat

 

“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.”

Quote of the Day

Quote of the Day

Jeremy Bentham

  “Among the several cloudy appellatives which have been commonly employed as cloaks for misgovernment, there is none more conspicuous in this atmosphere of illusion than the word Order.”

Quote of the Day

William Hazlitt

 

 “The love of liberty is the love of others; the love of power is the love of ourselves.”

Quote of the Day

 Sheldon Richman

“Apologists for activist government never tire of telling us that the benevolent state is our protector and that without it we’d be at the mercy of monsters. It is about time that we understood that the U.S. government does more to endanger the American people than any imagined monsters around the world…by pursuing its Grand Foreign Policy of meddling anywhere and everywhere.”

” The seven blunders that human society commits and cause all the violence: wealth without work, pleasure without conscience, knowledge without character, commerce without morality,
science without humanity, worship
without sacrifice, and politics without principles.”

Quote of the Day

John Taylor Gatto

 

  “Government schooling is the most radical adventure in history. It kills the family by monopolizing the best times of childhood and by teaching disrespect for home and parents….”

  “I suppose it is because nearly all
children go to school nowadays and
have things arranged for them that they seem so forlornly unable to produce their own ideas.”

Quote of the Day

Dorothy Thompson

 

 “Of all forms of government and society, those of free men and women are in many respects the most brittle. They give the fullest freedom for activities of private persons and groups who often identify their own interests, essentially selfish, with the general welfare”

Quote of the Day

Justice Charles Evans Hughes

 “When we lose the right to be different, we lose the privilege to be free.”

Quote of the Day

Clint Eastwood

 

 

 “At Waco, was there really an urgency to get those people out of the compound at that particular time? Was the press going to make it look heroic for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms? At Ruby Ridge, there was one guy in a cabin at the top of the mountain. Was it necessary for federal agents to go up there and shoot a 14-year-old in the back and shoot a woman with a child in her arms? What kind of mentality does that?”
