“Socialism is an alternative to capitalism as potassium cyanide is an alternative to water.”

Ludwig von Mises

“Liberty, once lost, is lost forever.”

John Adams

“In reality there is no such thing as an inflation of prices, relatively to gold. There is such a thing as a depreciated paper currency.”

Lysander Spooner

“Because silver and gold have their value from the matter itself, they have first this privilege, that the value of them cannot be altered by the power of one, nor of a few commonwealths, as being a common measure of the commodities of all places. But base money may easily be enhanced or abased.”

Thomas Hobbes

“Those who expect to reap the benefits of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.”

Thomas Paine

“The mind once enlightened cannot again become dark.”

Thomas Paine

“These are the times that try men’s souls.”

Thomas Paine

“The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress and grow.”

Thomas Paine

“Politics is the conspiracy of the unproductive but organized against the productive but unorganized.”

Joseph Sobran

“Even if you don’t like guns and don’t want to own them, you benefit from those who do.”

Ron Paul

“Practically all government attempts to redistribute wealth and income tend to smother productive incentives and lead toward general impoverishment.”

Henry Hazlitt

Sobran

I like Joseph Sobran's older quotes.

The same people who denounce monopoly capitalism usually want monopoly
government. And they want it for exactly the same reason capitalists want
monopolies: They're greedy.

“Leadership quality in governments throughout world in doubt. Public service seems to have low appeal to younger generations. We need to find ways to encourage those in their 20s to think beyond personal well being to help avert economic, social decay & disorder.”

Harald Malmgren

“I believe that all government is evil, and that trying to improve it is largely a waste of time.”

H. L. Mencken

“And you cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they can and should do for themselves.”

William J. H. Boetcker

“Arbitrary government power is being multiplied daily by the now practically unchallenged assumption that wherever there is any problem of any kind to be solved, government is the agency to step in and solve it.”

Henry Hazlitt

“Since when have we Americans been expected to bow submissively to authority and speak with awe and reverence to those who represent us? The constitutional theory is that we the people are the sovereigns, the state and federal officials only our agents. We who have the final word can speak softly or angrily. We can seek to challenge and annoy, as we need not stay docile and quiet.”

Justice William O. Douglas, dissenting, Colten v. Kentucky, 407 U.S. 104 (1972)

“Economic planning, regulation, and intervention pave the way to totalitarianism by building a power structure that will inevitably be seized by the most power-hungry and unscrupulous.”

Friedrich Hayek

“Liberty is not to be found in any form of government; she is in the heart of the free man; he bears her with him everywhere.”

Jean-Jacques Rousseau

“We are now moving towards complete collectivism or socialism, a system under which everybody is enslaved to everybody.”

Ayn Rand

“Those who suppress freedom always do so in the name of law and order.”

“When Fascism came into power, most people were unprepared, both theoretically and practically. They were unable to believe that man could exhibit such propensities for evil, such lust for power, such disregard for the rights of the weak, or such yearning for submission. Only a few had been aware of the rumbling of the volcano preceding the outbreak.”

Erich Fromm, Escape from Freedom


"I understand why an equality that was founded upon God involved neither contradiction nor disorder. Demagogy enters at the moment when, for want of a common denominator, the principle of equality degenerates into the principle of identity."

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Flight to Arras


"Fascism begins the moment a ruling class, fearing the people may use their political democracy to gain economic democracy, begins to destroy political democracy in order to retain its power of exploitation and special privilege."

Thomas Clement Douglas

“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.”

Søren Kierkegaard


"The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the dedicated communist, but people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction, true and false, no longer exists.”

Hannah Arendt


"Narcissists are unstable and go through repeated cycles of self-destruction, with other people usually paying the heft of the price. Narcissists tend to be divisive, vindictive, confrontational, aggressive, hate-filled, raging, incoherent, judgment-impaired, and irrational.

Narcissists are liars, confabulators, and miserable failures, although some of them are geniuses at disguising the fact that they are, in fact, losers."

Sam Vaknin

“Hubris calls for nemesis, and in one form or another it's going to get it, not as a punishment from outside but as the completion of a pattern already started.”

Mary Midgley

“Evil, when we are in its power, is not felt as evil but as a necessity, or even a duty. Power is as pitiless to the man who possesses it, or thinks he does, as it is to its victims; the latter it crushes, the former it intoxicates. The truth is, no one really possesses it."


Simone Weil


"And because of the increase in lawlessness, the love of most will grow cold."

Matthew 24:12

“Why do some people act as if making money offended their delicate minds? I am out for a legitimate profit, and not ashamed of it; the fact that people will pay money for my goods and services shows that my work is useful.”

Robert A. Heinlein

“The last official act of any government is to loot the treasury.”

George Washington

“Nothing will end war unless the people themselves refuse to go to war.”

Albert Einstein

“Someone asked me the other day if I believe in conspiracies. Well, sure. Here’s one. It is called the political system. It is nothing if not a giant conspiracy to rob, trick and subjugate the population.”

Jeffrey Tucker
