Quote of the Day

If ye love wealth better than liberty,the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace.

We ask not your counsels or your arms.

Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

— Samuel Adams

Quote of the Day

The majority is never right. Never, I tell you! That’s one of these lies in society that no free and intelligent man can ever help rebelling against. Who are the people that make up the biggest proportion of the population — the intelligent ones or the fools? I think we can agree it’s the fools, no matter where you go in this world, it’s the fools that form the overwhelming majority.

— Henrik Ibsen

Quote of the Day

By far the most numerous and most flagrant violations of personal liberty and
individual rights are performed by governments. The major crimes throughout
history, the ones executed on the largest scale, have been committed not by
individuals or bands of individuals but by governments, as a deliberate policy
of those governments, that is, by the official representatives of governments,
acting in their official capacity.

— John Hospers

Quote of the Day

True education makes for inequality;
the inequality of individuality,
the inequality of success,
the glorious inequality of talent, of genius;
for inequality, not mediocrity,
individual superiority, not standardization,
is the measure of the progress of the world.

— Felix E. Schelling

Quote of the Day

The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to prevailing superstition or taboo.

— H. L. Mencken

Quote of the Day

Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will. Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue till they have resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they suppress.

— Frederick Douglass

Quote of the Day

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe.

To be your own man is hard business.

If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened.

But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

— Rudyard Kipling

Quote of the Day

The only freedom deserving the name, is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it.

Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental and spiritual.

Mankind are greater gainers by suffering each other to live as seems good to themselves, than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest.”

— John Stuart Mill

Quote of the Day

‘Extremism’ is a word deliberately chosen for its vagueness and used by intellectual slobs who are too desperate, sneaky or lazy to say exactly what they mean. Its only purpose is to deliberately try to confuse the difference between people who are extremely good (usually because of devotion to their principles) with people who are extremely bad. The sleazeballs who use this supposedly scary, yet undefined word are not only trying to smear people of conviction and integrity, but they’re also trying to divert attention away from the fact that they are obviously not people of principle themselves.

— Rick Gaber

Quote of the Day

The growth of drug-related crime is a far greater evil to society as a whole than drug taking. Even so, because we have been seduced by the idea that governments should legislate for our own good, very few people can see how dangerously absurd the present policy is.

— John Casey
