"The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been two hundred years. These nations have progressed through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to complacency; from complaceny to apathy; from apathy to dependence; from dependency back again into bondage." - Sir Alex Fraser Tytler

"An elective despotism was not the government we fought for, but one which should not only be founded on true free principles, but in which the powers of government should be so divided and balanced among general bodies of magistracy, as that no one could transcend their legal limits without being effectually checked and restrained by the others." - Thomas Jefferson
(1743-1826), US Founding Father, drafted the Declaration of Independence, 3rd US President. Quote from 1782.

"In the end, more than freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all - security, comfort, and freedom. When the Athenians finally wanted not to give to society but for society to give to them, when the freedom they wished for most was freedom from responsibility then Athens ceased to be free and was never free again." - Edward Gibbon
(1737-1794) English historian and Member of Parliament. Quote from his book, 'Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire', 1909.

"Only a large-scale popular movement toward decentralization [individualistic free will] and self-help can arrest the present tendency toward [collectives and] statism... A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced [forcefully], because they love their servitude [lack of individual freedom and personal responsibility]. To make them love it [using fraud] is the task assigned, in present-day totalitarian states, to ministries of propaganda, [media and] newspaper editors and [educators and] schoolteachers." - Aldous Huxley
(1894-1963) Author. Quote from the Forward to his book, 'Brave New World', 1932.

"[Rugged individualism:] My personal feeling is that this is how any further improvement of the world will be done: by individuals making Quality decisions and that's all... I don't want to have any more enthusiasm for big programs full of social planning for big masses of people that leave individual Quality out... We've had that individual Quality in the past, exploited it as a natural resource without knowing it, and now it's just about depleted. Everyone's just about out of gumption. And I think it's about time to return to the rebuilding of this American [human] resource - individual worth." - Robert M. Pirsig

"[The disbursement and decentralisation of power, for example through executive, parliament, judiciary, states down to enforcing individual liberty, is a way to balance and check the potential danger to society and individuals from the corrupting influence of any individual or group with absolute power:] Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely... And remember, where you have a concentration of power in a few hands, all too frequently men with the mentality of gangsters get control [because of the irresistable opportunity for safe, easy and extraordinary gains].

[Quote No.45309] Need Area: Friends > General
"Ultimately, one can define the modern state sociologically only in terms of the specific means peculiar to it, as to every political association, namely, the use of physical force... a state is a human community that (successfully) claims the monopoly of the legitimate [legal] use of physical force within a given territory... the right to use physical force is ascribed to other institutions or to individuals only to the extent to which the state [and the government, politicians, etc] permits it. The state is considered the sole source of the 'right' to use violence." - Max Weber
(1863 - 1920), a German, who was a founding father of Sociology. Quote from his essay 'Politics as a Vocation', 1919.

[Quote No.45331] Need Area: Friends > General
"[Government is always power hungry. To this end to a greater or lesser extent it is always trying to control public opinion and stiffle debate through either subtle or overt censorship, ridicule and propaganda, under the 'cover' of 'the public good'. For this to occur the media has only to repeat the government spin without critical forethought, skeptical research and balanced presentation, often defending themselves with the excuse of 'limited resources'. This conspiracy by design or default thereby denies the public the opportunity for informed choice and so their individual liberty and a functioning democracy. The following is an example of this perversion of truth and diversity of opinion which contributed to one of the greatest tragedies in modern history, namely the Second World War:] In relation to the political decontamination of our public life, the government will embark upon a systematic campaign to restore the nationís moral and material health. The whole educational system, theater, film, literature, the press and broadcasting - all these will be used as a means to this end." - Adolf Hitler
(1889-1945) German Nazi Dictator. Source: 'Volkischer Beobachter', 23 March 1933.

"[Modern media is both a power for good but also a great danger as it increases the reach and influence of propaganda. For this reason, individual skepticism and independent thought is vital for individual liberty and a functioning democracy:] Hitlerís dictatorship differed in one fundamental point from all its predecessors in history. It was the first dictatorship in the present period of modern technical development, a dictatorship which made complete use of all technical means for the domination of its own country. Through technical devices like the radio and the loud-speaker, eighty million people were deprived of independent thought. It was thereby possible to subject them to the will of one man." - Albert Speer
(1905-1981), Berthold Konrad Hermann Albert Speer was a German architect and the German Nazi dictator, Adolf Hitler's chief architect before becoming Minister of Armaments and War Production for the Third Reich. Source: at the Nuremberg Trials after World War II, 1946.

[Quote No.45403] Need Area: Friends > General
"With government controlling more and more of our economy, the fact that crooks have to go where the money is causes more and more of them to turn to government employment. However, there is probably an even stronger reason for individuals to become politicians. That is the power which accompanies political office. Many idealists think they know better than the ordinary person what is good for that person. They consider themselves a cut above the ordinary individual who just isnít smart enough to know what he or she should do. Idealists seek government power to impose their ideas upon the rest of us. They may be personally honest insofar as not thinking of lining their own pockets with money but have little compunction about bolstering their egos with government power. This attitude explains the environmentalists, the do-gooders, and others whose ego causes them to seek government power to impose their ideas upon those of us who just want to make our way in a free market in open competition with everyone else. They donít believe in a free market or voluntary actions. They do believe in controlling others by means of government power." - Harry Hoiles

"A free society, by nature, is an individualist society. It leaves people [so long as they do not harm others, including their property, through force or fraud] free to pursue their own interests, through voluntary trade with others, and leaves them responsible for choosing their own course in life. A free society allows, encourages, and even depends on people who can define the values that give their lives meaning, and then pursue these values autonomously. It relies on people who are entrepreneurs in their own lives, who are capable of thinking for themselves, who have a sense of self-ownership, and the drive to make the most of themselves and their opportunities." - David Kelley

"[The following explains why a free market is important to individual happiness:] A dictator may deem the conduct of the consumers rather foolish. Why should they be so crazy about individually fashioned clothes? He may be right from the point of view of his own value judgments. But the trouble is that valuation is [subjective, i.e. -] personal, individual, and arbitrary. The democracy of the [capitalist free] market consists in the fact that people themselves make their choices and that no dictator [whether an individual-politician or group-parliament] has the power to force them to submit to his value judgments." - Ludwig von Mises

"The state - or, to make matters more concrete, the government - consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office. Their principal device to that end is to search out groups who pant and pine for something they can't get, and to promise to give it to them. Nine times out of ten that promise is worth nothing. The tenth time it is made good by looting 'A' to satisfy 'B'. In other words, government is a broker in pillage, and every election is a sort of advanced auction on stolen goods." - H.L. Mencken

"[Politicians and those in power should remember the following:] The most drastic deprivation which any person can suffer is that of the freedom to utilize and enjoy the faculties which nature has given him and which his will and desire have developed. Keep a man from exercising his mind, his body, his faculties in the pursuit of his own wishes and delights, keep him from enjoying the fruits of his efforts - and you have done everything evil to him that you can. The greatest desire of each person, in short, is to be free to get the most he can out of life. There is no other way objectively to define social goals than to call them the sum of the those individual goals which can be harmonized in society." - Slyvestro Petro

"...In just a few days, Congress will solemnly swear to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. They should read Article 1 Section 8 and the Bill of Rights before taking such a serious oath. Most legislation violates key provisions of the Constitution in very basic ways, and if members canít bring themselves to say 'no' in the face of pressure from the special interests, they have broken trust with their constituents and violated their oath. Congress does not exist to serve the special interests. It exists to protect [the spirit of the Declaration of Independence, the US Constitution, including the Bill of Rights, and] the rule of law... Congress should resolve to respect personal liberty and free markets. Learn more about the free market and how it regulates commerce and produces greater prosperity ever than any legislation or regulation. Understand that economic freedom is freedom. Resolve not to get in the way of voluntary contracts between consenting adults. Stop bailing out failed yet politically connected companies and industries. Stop forcing people to engage in commerce when they donít want to, and stop prohibiting them from buying and selling when they want to. Stop trying to legislate your ideas of fairness. Protect property rights. Protect the individual. That is enough." - Ron Paul

[Quote No.45465] Need Area: Friends > General
"[Freedom, individualism, authenticity and being yourself so long as you don't hurt another's physical person or property:] The individual is an autonomous being. [To those that believe in the pre-eminence of freedom, regardless of any other ideology and philosophy to the contrary] His [or her] life belongs to him [or her, not to his or her parents, not to his or her employers], not to society, his [or her] neighbors, the needy, an imagined [or real] God, or the state. He [or she] is not born [a slave] owing anything to anyone. He [or she] owns his [or her body and therefore his or her] life free and clear. [He or she is born with a natural intellectual potential capacity and therefore a natural born right - an inalienable right - to make his or her own choices for himself or herself, or in other words, to have freedom, which means to be free from another's force or fraud, and then therefore to be responsible for the consequences, both good and bad. He or she can choose for himself or herself to help others but, regardless of the sometimes useful concepts of a social contract, democracy, majority (or mob) rule or utilitarianism, no individual or group can choose for another and then force them to do likewise. To honor each individual's inalienable right to freedom (from their ownership of their own body) they must choose for themselves, particularly after hearing the arguments of all sides, what to do with their bodies, life and, therefore by extension what their body created or freely exchanged, gifted or inherited, that is their private property, including their financial assets.]" - Harry Binswanger
An American philosopher and writer. He is an Objectivist and was a long-time associate of Ayn Rand, working with her on The Ayn Rand Lexicon.

[Quote No.45485] Need Area: Friends > General
"A Libertarianís New Yearís Resolutions: -- 1. I resolve to [advocate and] sell liberty by appealing to the self-interest of each prospect, rather than preaching to people and expecting them to suddenly adopt my ideas of right and wrong. -- 2. I resolve to keep from being drawn into arguments or debates. My purpose is to inspire people to want liberty ó not to prove that theyíre wrong. -- 3. I resolve to listen when people tell me of their wants and needs, so I can help them see how a free society will satisfy those needs. -- 4. I resolve to identify myself, when appropriate, with the social goals someone may seek ó a cleaner environment, more help for the poor, a less divisive society ó and try to show him that those goals can never be achieved by government, but will be well served in a free society. -- 5. I resolve to be compassionate and respectful of the beliefs and needs that lead people to seek government help. I donít have to approve of their subsidies or policies ó but if I donít acknowledge their needs, I have no hope of helping them find a better way to solve their problems. -- 6. No matter what the issue, I resolve to keep returning to the central point: how much better off the individual will be in a free society. -- 7. I resolve to acknowledge my good fortune in having been born an American. Any plan for improvement must begin with a recognition of the good things we have. To speak only of Americaís defects will make me a tiresome crank. -- 8. I resolve to focus on the ways America could be so much better with a very small government ó not to dwell on all the wrongs that exist today. -- 9. I resolve to cleanse myself of hate, resentment, and bitterness. Such things steal time and attention from the work that must be done. -- 10. I resolve to speak, dress, and act in a respectable manner. I may be the first Libertarian someone has encountered, and itís important that he get a good first impression. No one will hear the message if the messenger is unattractive. -- 11. I resolve to remind myself that someoneís Ďstupidí opinion may be an opinion I once held. If I can grow, why canít I help him grow? -- 12. I resolve not to raise my voice in any discussion. In a shouting match, no one wins, no one changes his mind, and no one will be inspired to join our quest for a free society. -- 13. I resolve not to adopt the tactics of Republicans and Democrats. They use character assassination, evasions, and intimidation because they have no real benefits to offer Americans. We, on the other hand, are offering to set people free ó and so we can win simply by focusing on the better life our proposals will bring. -- 14. I resolve to be civil to my opponents, and treat them with respect. However anyone chooses to treat me, itís important that I be a better person than my enemies." - Harry Browne
1996 and 2000 Libertarian Party Nominee for US President. Written in 1998.

"Socialism wants to have the fullness of state force which before only existed in despotism. ... However, it goes further than anything in the past because it aims at the formal destruction of the individual...[Individualism and individual freedom are contrary to the ideals, goals and methods of Socialism:] " - Friedrich Nietzsche

[Quote No.45495] Need Area: Friends > General
"[The right to bear arms and own private weapons for sport, hunting and self-defence:] The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed the subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty." - Adolf Hitler
(1889-1945) German Nazi Dictator. Source: 'Hitler's Table Talks 1941-1944', Edited by H.R. Trevor-Roper (London: Widenfeld and Nicolson, 1953), pp. 425-426.
