"It is time to cut through the underbrush of detail and face up to the basic question in this issue of state help versus self-help. What kind of society do we want? One of independent self-reliant citizens, prepared to take care of themselves and their families, asking from the state only to leave them alone and get off their backs? Or a society of government pensioners, willing to sign away their political and economic liberty in exchange for ever bigger handouts? Which is the more desirable type of citizen..." - William Henry Chamberlin

[Quote No.44762] Need Area: Friends > General
"Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between [forceful] government and [cooperative] society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done [through force and coercion] by government, the socialists conclude that we object to its being done at all. [We, libertarians, have no objection to it being done voluntarily. We object to the abuse of any individual's unalienable human right to liberty and informed choice without force, coercion or fraud, regarding their own body and property.] " - Frederic Bastiat
(1801-1850) [Claude Frederic Bastiat] French economist, statesman, and author. He did most of his writing during the years just before - and immediately following - the French Revolution of February 1848. Quote from circa 1837.

[Quote No.44763] Need Area: Friends > General
"We must, therefore, emphasize that 'we' are not the government; the government is not 'us.' The government does not in any accurate sense 'represent' the majority of the people. But, even if it did, even if 70 percent of the people decided to murder the remaining 30 percent, this would still be murder and would not be voluntary suicide on the part of the slaughtered minority. No organicist metaphor, no irrelevant bromide that 'we are all part of one another,' must be permitted to obscure this basic fact. [No 'greater good' utilitarian argument nor majority, even democratically chosen, can claim it is moral to abuse the unalienable human rights of any minority, including the smallest minority - the individual!]" - Murray N. Rothbard
(1926 - 1995), Dean of the Austrian School of Economics. Quote from 'Egalitarianism as a Revolt Against Nature and Other Essays', (Auburn: Mises Institute, 2000 [1974]), pp. 55-88.

"No one can find a safe way out for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his [or her] own interests, must thrust himself [or herself] vigorously into the intellectual battle [over our human rights, freedom and theory of political economy]. None can stand aside with unconcern; the interests of everyone hang on the result. Whether he [or she] chooses or not, every man [or woman] is drawn into the great historical struggle, the decisive battle into which our epoch has plunged us." - Ludwig von Mises

"[It is the usual behaviour of governments when threatened to find ways to influence public opinion in and outside of their country and draw in allies to improve their chances to win political, social and military conflicts:] The French forces (the main United Nations armed force in Sarajevo) were continually harassed, shot at, blocked at, and threatened by Bosnian government forces . . . it was the French who pointed out that the Bosnian government was placing weapons systems next to UN facilities in order to draw fire from Serb artillery onto civilian and UN targets and thus provoke international outrage against the Serbs." - Philip Corwen

[Quote No.44788] Need Area: Friends > General
"[Governments are well known to use 'false flag' operations to create an excuse to start military conflicts and wars as 'defensive' rather than acts of aggression in order to win the 'hearts and minds' of their own citizens and their allies, for example this method of provocation was used in the Winter War in 1939:] On 26 November, a border incident was reported near the village of Mainila. A Soviet border guard post had been shelled by an unknown party resulting, according to Soviet reports, in the deaths of four and injuries of nine border guards. Research conducted by several Finnish and Russian historians later concluded that the shelling was carried out from the Soviet side of the border by an NKVD unit with the purpose of providing the Soviet Union with a casus belli [a Latin expression meaning the justification for acts of war. Casus means 'incident', 'rupture' or indeed 'case', while belli means bellic as in 'of war'] and a pretext to withdraw from the non-aggression pact." - Wikipedia.org

[Quote No.44789] Need Area: Friends > General
"[Governments are well known to use false flag deceptions - frauds - to give them a pretext to start wars:] False flag (also known as black flag) operations are covert operations designed to deceive in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities. The name is derived from the military concept of flying false colors; that is: flying the flag of a country other than one’s own. False flag operations are not limited to war and counter-insurgency operations and can be used during peace-time... In 1788, a head tailor of the Royal Swedish Opera received an order to sew a number of Russian military uniforms that later were used in an exchange of gunfire at Puumala, a Swedish outpost on the Russo-Swedish border, on June 27, 1788. The staged attack, which caused an outrage in Stockholm, was to convince the Riksdag of the Estates and to provide the Swedish king Gustav III with an excuse to declare a 'defensive' war on Russia. This was important since the king did not have constitutional right to start offensive war without agreement of the estates who had already made clear that their acceptance would not be forthcoming. The Mukden incident in 1931 involved Japanese officers fabricating a pretext for annexing Manchuria by blowing up a section of railway. Six years later in 1937 they falsely claimed the kidnapping of one of their soldiers in the Marco Polo Bridge Incident as an excuse to invade China proper. The Gleiwitz incident in 1939 involved Reinhard Heydrich fabricating evidence of a Polish attack against Germany to mobilize German public opinion for war, to establish casus belli, and to justify the war with Poland. This, along with other false flag operations in Operation Himmler, would be used to mobilize support from the German population for the start of World War II in Europe. The Kassa attack in 1941 involved the city of Kassa, today Košice (Slovakia), which was then part of Hungary, being bombed by three unidentified planes of apparently Soviet origin. This attack became the pretext for the government of Hungary to declare war on the Soviet Union. The replacement of Iran's Anglo-Persian Oil Company with five American oil companies and the 1953 Iranian coup d'état was the consequence of the U.S. and British-orchestrated false flag operation, Operation Ajax. Operation Ajax used political intrigue, propaganda, and agreements with Qashqai tribal leaders to depose the democratically elected leader of Iran, Mohammed Mosaddeq. Information regarding the CIA-sponsored coup d'etat has been largely declassified and is available in the CIA archives. The planned, but never executed, 1962 Operation Northwoods plot by the U.S. Department of Defense for a war with Cuba involved scenarios such as fabricating the hijacking or shooting down of passenger and military planes, sinking a U.S. ship in the vicinity of Cuba, burning crops, sinking a boat filled with Cuban refugees, attacks by alleged Cuban infiltrators inside the United States, and harassment of U.S. aircraft and shipping and the destruction of aerial drones by aircraft disguised as Cuban MiGs. These actions would be blamed on Cuba, and would be a pretext for an invasion of Cuba and the overthrow of Fidel Castro's communist government. It was authored by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, but then rejected by President John F. Kennedy. The surprise discovery of the documents relating to Operation Northwoods was a result of the comprehensive search for records related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy by the Assassination Records Review Board in the mid-1990s. Information about Operation Northwoods was later publicized by James Bamford." - Wikipedia.org

[Quote No.44790] Need Area: Friends > General
"[In trying to understand confusing, often deliberately deceptive or fraudulent, human and government actions it is always useful to understand the motivations of the participants and ask, 'Cui bono?']: 'To whose benefit?', literally 'as a benefit to whom?'... a Latin adage that is used either to suggest a hidden motive or to indicate that the party responsible for something may not be who it appears at first to be. Commonly the phrase is used to suggest that the person or people guilty of committing a crime may be found among those who have something to gain, chiefly with an eye toward financial gain [and therefore another frequently useful maxim, 'Follow the money']. The party that benefits may not always be obvious or may have successfully diverted attention to a scapegoat... The Roman orator and statesman Marcus Tullius Cicero, in his speech Pro Roscio Amerino, section 84, attributed the expression 'cui bono' to the Roman consul and censor Lucius Cassius Longinus Ravilla: 'The famous Lucius Cassius, whom the Roman people used to regard as a very honest and wise judge, was in the habit of asking, time and again, 'To whose benefit?' [This is the first part of the three major pieces of information public prosecutors need to make a strong case in legal trials: 'motive, means and opportunity' along with 'witnesses, paper trail and forensic evidence'.]" - Wikipedia.org

[Quote No.44803] Need Area: Friends > General
"[Envy of others is not a healthy emotion:] In large parts of the oldest civilized region of the world, you will find in nearly every room a pretty blue charm that looks like an eye. It's in the front entrance of homes, somewhere in every room, on boats, in airports, in restaurants, and built into the designs of everything from wallpaper to grocery bags. It's on jewelry, wind chimes, and serving plates. It is common in the Aegean Sea region but encompasses all countries and religious traditions. Though it's never received endorsement from any clerical body - they consider it a silly superstition - it is found in the histories of Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. In Turkey, from where I just returned, it's called the 'nazar boncugu'. That's Turkish, but in Arabic it is 'ayn al-hasud'. In Hebrew it is 'ayn ha-r a'. In Greek, it is το 'µΆτι', and in Spanish, it is 'mal de ojo'. Its purpose is to ward off the evil eye. What is that? Americans imagine that it is some ancient myth that has no relevance to modernity... Far from being some primitive idea, the evil eye is summed up in a wicked vice we don't hear about anymore: envy. The evil eye looks for [other's] success and wishes for its destruction [so that none is better than another, all are equal, no-one is unique, all difference is destroyed]. It is different from jealousy in that sense. It doesn't desire the wealth or happiness of another. It wants the other to suffer because of the other's wealth, fame, success, or happiness. People since the ancient world have feared this impulse more than any other. It is [in the nature of a high proportion of humans and is] more dangerous to persons and society than any natural disaster. It is a greater threat day to day than floods, hurricanes, or wild beasts. In other words, the concept of the evil eye grows out of a very real conviction that the greatest threat to human flourishing is the malice of human beings who resent [other's] success. And that is actually a very keen insight! No wonder it's had such traction in all religions for so long. Further, the charm here [the nazar] looks like an eye too, though its purpose is to fight the evil eye... In political theory, this would mean secure property rights. It would mean a legal regime that prohibits the realization of envy [of other's success]. Even if you feel envy in your heart [i.e. the desire to destroy the success of others that makes people unequal and therefore unique], you can't use institutional measures [and government laws, force, coercion and fraud] to see it [the destruction of the unalienable right to life, liberty and to the pursit of unique, individual happiness] enacted." - Jeffrey Tucker
Quote from his article, 'How to Protect Against the Evil Eye', published October 4, 2012 on 'Laissez-Faire Today'. [http://lfb.org/today/ ]

"The Big Lie of the late 20th century was that Nazism was Rightist. It was in fact typical of the Leftism of its day. It was only to the Right of Stalin's Communism. Communism was believed by Karl Marx to be the final evolution of socialism]. The very word 'Nazi' is a German abbreviation for 'National Socialist' (Nationalsozialist) and the full name of Hitler's political party (translated) was 'The National Socialist German Workers' Party' (In German: Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei). [The political spectrum is less about left and right government and more about either submitting to government authority or having your own individual authority over yourself and your property and protecting and respecting the same for others.]" - Dr. John Joseph Ray

"Most of the major ills of the world have been caused by well-meaning people who ignored the principle of individual freedom, except as applied to themselves, and who were obsessed with fanatical zeal to improve the lot of mankind-in-the-mass through some pet formula of their own. The harm done by ordinary criminals, murderers, gangsters, and thieves is negligible in comparison with the agony inflicted upon human beings by the professional do-gooders [often politicians], who attempt to set themselves up as gods on earth and who would ruthlessly force their views on all others - with the abiding assurance that the end justifies the means." - Henry Grady Weaver

"[Fascism along with socialism, communism and 'crony' rather than 'free-market' capitalism is founded on disregard for the unalienable equal human rights of individuals to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness:] Fascist ethics begin ... with the acknowledgment that it is not the individual who confers a meaning upon society, but it is, instead, the existence of a human society which determines the human character of the individual. According to Fascism, a true, a great spiritual life cannot take place unless the State [that is the 'power elite'] has risen to a position of pre-eminence in the world of man. The curtailment of liberty thus becomes justified at once, and this need of rising the State [and those 'in power'] to its [and 'their'] rightful position." - Mario Palmieri

[Quote No.44818] Need Area: Friends > General
"Try walking the halls of Congress [in the USA or parliaments anywhere in the world]. It's 'Abercrombie and Fitch' meets the Hair Club for Men. Lots of really photogenic young people kissing up to lots of insufferable blowhards. Separated by one or two generations, most of these players [politicians and bureaucrats] have only one real thing in common: They have never been weaned from the public teat. The closest they've ever come to meeting a payroll is when they come together to spend everyone else's payroll taxes." - Michelle Malkin
(1970 - ) American jourmalist, political commentator and author. Quote from 'Jewish World Review', March 27, 2002.

"The Democrats [Labor, Progressive Liberals] and Republicans [Conservatives, Classical Liberals] stand at two extremes, characterized by which parts of our lives they emphasize their desire to control [for example the social or the financial, etc]. Libertarians reject both extremes in favor of the government leaving control of your life to you [while still providing protection against crimes against property and person]." - Michael Badnarik
(1954 - ), American software engineer, political figure, and former radio talk show host.

[Quote No.44860] Need Area: Friends > General
"Whenever a Government assumes the power of discriminating between the different classes of the community, it becomes, in effect, the arbiter of their prosperity, and exercises a power not contemplated by any intelligent people in delegating their sovereignty to their rulers. It then becomes the great regulator of the profits of every species of industry, and reduces men from dependence on their own exertions, to a dependence on the caprices of their Government. Governments possess no delegated right to tamper with individual industry a single hair's-breadth beyond what is essential to protect the rights of person and property." - William Leggett

"We should remember that in an area controlled by such a process as national socialism, or any similar philosophy of governmental direction, the question and definition of what human personality is and what human rights and fundamental freedoms are, rest with the dominant political power." - Russell J. Clinchy

[Quote No.44888] Need Area: Friends > General
"In the pursuit of self-determination and equal unalienable individual human rights, especially freedom from force, coercion and fraud, it would be inconsistent to advocate force, except as a last resort in self-defence. Therefore when these rights are being broken, by dictatorships for example, what non-violent methods can be used? Luckily many methods that have worked in the past have been studied and explained in the work of author and peace activist Gene Sharp. Born in 1928, his long career has included being a professor of political science at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth since 1972. He simultaneously held research appointments at Harvard University’s Center for International Affairs since 1965. In 1983 he founded the Albert Einstein Institution, a non-profit organization devoted to studies and promotion of the use of nonviolent action in conflicts worldwide. For his lifelong commitment to the defense of freedom, democracy, and the reduction of political violence through scholarly analysis of the power of nonviolent action, The Peace Abbey of Sherborn, MA, awarded him the Courage of Conscience award April 4, 2008. In 2009 and 2012 he was nominated for the Nobel peace prize. In 2011 he was awarded the El-Hibri Peace Education Prize. In 2012 he was awarded, together with Sima Samar and Campaign Against Arms Trade, the Right Livelihood Award. In 2012 he was also awarded the Distinguished Lifetime Democracy Award. Some of his most important works include, 'The Politics of Nonviolent Action' (1973), 'From Dictatorship to Democracy: A conceptual framework for liberation' (1994) and, 'Waging Nonviolent Struggle: 20th Century Practice and 21st Century Potential', (2005)." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

[Quote No.44893] Need Area: Friends > General
"[For a democracy to work well the voters must have a highly developed skepticism towards politicians and the media. Unfortunately...] The ability of voters these days to see through an empty con-artist with pleasant features and a nice turn of phrase is in many cases close to zero...[and] The media culture we have remains one of the main reasons that, time after time, we wind up with mediocre winners...[with] its ability to distract small minds with childish things...while trotting out views that are rarely questioned [doubted or seriously debated and evidence required] – thanks to two generations of dumbed down, formulaic and conformist education." - John Ward

[Quote No.44900] Need Area: Friends > General
"[A true story - with a message about Responsibility and] Responsibleness - the Greatest Gift: Your attitude toward limitations and disabilities determines to what degree they cause you suffering. Rabbi Elchonon Hertzman writes that he once met someone who was especially intelligent and knowledgeable, and also partially paralyzed. Although he moved around in a wheelchair, he was extremely calm and patient. He ran a large business and accomplished great things. One day Rabbi Hertzman heard his story: The handicapped man came from a wealthy home and his parents could afford all the help they wished. Nevertheless, they planned that they would not allow their son's physical defect to be a deterrent factor in his life. They forced him to do everything by himself. They made him cook and clean and do everything he needed without the assistance of anyone else. At first, the neighbors thought that the parents were exceedingly cruel. They later realized that by instilling in their son the attitude that he could do whatever he had the confidence he could do, the parents had given him the greatest gift possible. [Believers in small government and individual freedom, independence and personal responsibility would see this as a metaphor for their political perspective and approach.]Rabbi Zelig PliskinQuote from his book, 'Gateway to Happiness', p.239." - Rabbi Zelig Pliskin

[Quote No.44914] Need Area: Friends > General
"One of the things that people have to understand is that the American Revolution was truly an epic revolution in the way individuals were perceived in relation to the rest of the society. Throughout history individuals had always been cogs in some machine; they'd always been something to be sacrificed for the king, the tribe, the gang, the chieftain, the society around them, the race, whatever, and the real revolution, in America especially, was a moral revolution. It was a moral revolution in that ... suddenly, with the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution [primarily based on the ideas of Natural Rights espoused by the philosopher, John Locke], the individual, his life, his well-being, his property, his happiness became central to our values, and that is what really made America unique. People came here from all over the world to try to escape the kind of oppression they had and experienced in the past. They came here for freedom; they came here for self-expression and self-realization, and America offered them that kind of a place." - Robert Bidinotto

[Quote No.44918] Need Area: Friends > General
"There are, fundamentally, only two causes of the progress of the nineteenth century - the same two causes which you will find at the root of any happy, benevolent, progressive era in human history. One cause is psychological, the other existential - or: one pertains to man's consciousness, the other to the physical conditions of his existence. The first is reason, the second is freedom. And when I say 'freedom,' I do not mean poetic sloppiness, such as 'freedom from want' or 'freedom from fear' or 'freedom from the necessity of earning a living.' I mean 'freedom from compulsion - freedom from rule by physical force.' Which means: political freedom." - Ayn Rand
(1905 - 1982), she was an author and philosopher.

Published as a pamphlet by the Nathaniel Branden Institute in 1967, and now included as a chapter in the book, 'Philosophy: Who Needs It?').

"The Constitution of the United States is a law for rulers and people, equally in war and in peace, and covers with the shield of its protection all classes of men, at all times, and under all circumstances. No doctrine, involving more pernicious [i.e. harmful] consequences, was ever invented by the wit of man than that any of its provisions can be suspended during any of the great exigencies [i.e. urgent needs] of government." - David Davis
