(Socialist) Quote of the Day

“What we don’t see is that freedom is not a concept in which people can do anything they want, be anything they can be.

Freedom is about authority.

Freedom is about the willingness of every single human being to cede to lawful authority a great deal of discretion about what you do.”

— Rudolph W. Giuliani

(Socialist) Quote of the Day

“… we understand only the individual’s capacity to make sacrifices for the community, for his fellow men.”

— Adolf Hitler

(Socialist) Quote of the Day

“Social positivism only accepts duties, for all and towards all. Its constant social viewpoint cannot include any notion of rights, for such notion always rests on individuality. We are born under a load of obligations of every kind, to our predecessors, to our successors, to our contemporaries. These obligations then increase or accumulate, for it is some time before we can return any service.

…Any human right is therefore as absurd as immoral. Since there are no divine rights anymore, this concept must therefore disappear completely as related only to the preliminary regime and totally inconsistent with the final state where there are only duties based on functions.”

— Auguste Comte
