Quote of the Day

Always remember the difference between economic power and political power: You can refuse to hire someone’s services or buy his products in the private sector and go somewhere else instead. In the public sector, though, if you refuse to¬†accept a politician’s or bureaucrat’s product or services you go to jail.

Ultimately, after all, all regulations are observed and all taxes are paid at gunpoint. I believe those few who can’t even see that have been short-sighted sheep, and I suggest they learn how to think conceptually, develop consistency¬†and grasp principles soon.

The law, unfortunately, has always been retained on the side of power; laws have uniformly been enacted for the protection and perpetuation of power.

— Thomas Cooper

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
