"[Foreign policy, interventionism and war:] Here is the classic example of that kind of insincerity in both foreign and domestic affairs which permeates not only avowed motives but also probably the conscious motives of the actors themselves - that of a policy which pretends to aspire to peace but unerringly generates war, the policy of continual preparation for war [which even today co-ordinates politics with multi-national companies' interests and the military-industrial complex], the policy of meddlesome interventionism. There was no corner of the known world where some interest was not alleged to be in danger or under actual attack. If the interests were not those of Rome, they were those of Rome's allies; and if Rome had no allies, then allies would be invented. When it was utterly impossible to contrive such an interest - why, then it was the national honour that had been insulted. The fight was always invested with an aura of legality. Rome was always being attacked by evil-minded neighbors, always fighting for a breathing space. The whole world was pervaded by a host of enemies and it was manifestly Rome's duty to guard against their indubitably aggressive designs. They were enemies who only waited to fall on the Roman people..." - Joseph Schumpeter

"I've always thought that the American eagle needed a left wing and a right wing. The [political] right wing would see to it that economic interests had their legitimate concerns addressed. The [political] left wing would see to it that ordinary people were included in the bargain. Both would keep the great bird on course. But with two right wings or two left wings, it's no longer an eagle and it's going to crash." - Bill Moyers

"A party of order or stability [to conserve what is good], and a party of progress or reform [to improve on the present], are both necessary elements of a healthy state of political life. [For more than 200 years, the terms 'Left' and 'Right' have been used to describe these two orientations. The practice originated during the French Revolution (1789–99), when members of the national legislative assembly who opposed the monarchy and supported the revolution sat on the left side of the assembly hall, and those who opposed the revolution -- and therefore supported the status quo -- sat on the right.] " - John Stuart Mill

[Quote No.50758] Need Area: Friends > General
"It is not the right of property which is protected, but the right to property. Property, per se, has no rights; but the individual - the man - has three great rights, equally sacred from arbitrary interference: the right to his life, the right to his liberty, the right to his property.... The three rights are so bound together as to be essentially one right. To give a man his life but deny him his liberty, is to take from him all that makes his life worth living. To give him his liberty but take from him the property which is the fruit and badge of his liberty, is to still leave him a slave." - George Sutherland

[Quote No.50760] Need Area: Friends > General
"...The Bill of Rights in the United States Constitution recognizes no distinction between property rights and other human rights. The ban against unreasonable search and seizure covers 'persons, houses, papers, and effects,' without discrimination. No person may, without due process of law, be deprived of 'life, liberty or property'; all are equally inviolable. The right to trial by jury is assured in criminal and civil cases alike. Excessive bail, excessive fines, and cruel and unusual punishments are grouped in a single prohibition. The Founding Fathers realized that a man or woman without property rights - without the right to the product of his own labor - is not a free man. These constitutional rights all have two characteristics in common. First, they apply equally to all persons. Second, they are, without exception, guarantees of freedom or immunity from governmental interference. They are not assertions of claims against others, individually or collectively. They merely say, in effect, that there are certain human liberties, including some pertaining to property, which are essential to free citizens and upon which the State shall not infringe. Now what about the so-called human rights that are represented as superior to property rights? What about the 'right' to a job, the 'right' to a standard of living, the 'right' to a minimum wage or a maximum work week, the right to a 'fair' price, the 'right' to bargain collectively, the 'right' to security against the adversities and hazards of life, such as old age and disability? The framers of the [U.S] Constitution would have been astonished to hear these things spoken of as rights. They are not immunities from governmental compulsion; on the contrary, they are demands for new forms of governmental compulsion. They are not claims to the product of one's own labor; they are, in some if not in most cases, claims to the products of other people’s labor. These 'human rights' are indeed different from property rights, for they rest on a denial of the basic concept of property rights. They are not freedoms or immunities assured to all persons alike. They are special privileges conferred upon some persons at the expense of others. The real distinction is not between property rights and human rights, but between equality of protection from governmental compulsion on the one hand and demands for the exercise of such compulsion for the benefit of favored groups on the other!" - Paul L. Poirot

"[Freedom, individualism and being yourself so long as you don't hurt another's physical person or property:] At the heart of western freedom and democracy is the belief that the individual man [or woman]...is the touchstone of value, and all society, groups, the state, exist for his benefit. Therefore the enlargement of liberty for individual human beings must be the supreme goal and abiding practice of any western [or eastern] society." - Robert F. Kennedy

[Quote No.50802] Need Area: Friends > General
"[Human rights, privileges and duties:] ‘I Have a Right!’ ... - Lots of people make this claim without even thinking about the nature and source of rights. What are rights, and where do they come from? The progressive or interventionist view is that so long as legislation is adopted under the rules of procedural due process, government creates and extinguishes rights. For example, [the US] Congress, by following the rules of legislative process outlined in the [US] Constitution, can create or extinguish a right to a job, a right to an education, or a right to food. When progressives wish to expand the scope of government they often make a distinction between a ‘privilege’ and a ‘right.’ In this view, something is a privilege only if a person can acquire it through his own means; something is a right if government uses tax money or other coercive powers to provide it to individuals, irrespective of their means. Really important things, progressives say, ought to be rights, not privileges. Thus health care in America was once a privilege, but now it’s touted in both rhetoric and law as a right. In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson wrote about ‘unalienable’ rights that all individuals have irrespective of government. According to him, all humans are ‘endowed’ with these rights by God. Some of Jefferson’s colleagues said that ‘nature’ endowed humans with rights - that is, that rights are inherent in human nature. In either case, rights are logically prior to government. Government has no legitimate authority to add to or subtract from such rights. Its role is to protect them. If something is a human right in the Jeffersonian sense, it applies to all individuals merely by virtue of their humanity. If one person has such a right, all other humans must logically have the same right. One cannot, without self-contradiction, claim a human right for himself and deny it to others. To do so would be to admit that the right is not a ‘human’ right. Moreover, it must be possible for all individuals to exercise the claimed right simultaneously without logical contradiction. If, when I exercise a right I have claimed, it is thereby impossible for someone else to exercise the identical right at the same time, my action implies that the alleged right does not inhere in human nature. My action implies that it is my right and not the right of the other person. For example, suppose I claim a right to a job. If that claim means that I will be employed any time I wish to be (what else could it mean?), there must be some other person who has the duty to provide the job. But then that other person does not have the same right I have. My right is to be employed, his ‘right’ is to provide the job. My right creates a duty for him to undertake some positive action that he may not want to undertake. Notwithstanding that we both are human, his freedom of choice is subordinated to my freedom of choice. Is there any job-related fundamental human right in the Jeffersonian sense? Yes, it is the right of all individuals to offer to buy or sell labor services at any terms they choose. I have a right to offer to sell my labor services at terms I like, and so do you. We all can exercise that right without thereby denying it to anyone else. I have a right to offer to buy (employ) the labor services of any other person at terms I like, and so do you. We can do so without thereby denying the right to anyone else. Those to whom you and I extend our offers are free to reject them. In exercising these rights we impose no duty to undertake any positive action on any other person. Apply the same test to the right to food, the right to an education, and the right to health care. Are any of these fundamental human rights? If they are interpreted to mean that individuals will receive food, education, and health care no matter what other people want, they are not fundamental human rights. We all have a fundamental right to offer to buy or sell food, education services, and health care at any terms we like, but if we cannot find others who are willing to accept our offers, we have no right to force them to do so. Apply the same test to the rights guaranteed by the First Amendment: freedom of religion, freedom of association, freedom of speech, and freedom of the press. These are all fundamental human rights. We each can exercise free choice of religion without denying that right to others. Note, however, we have no right to join a religious organization that doesn’t want to accept us. We each can associate with any individuals or groups, but only so long as they are willing to associate with us. Exercising that right does not make it impossible for others to do the same. We each can say what we like without denying that same right to others. Note again, however, we have no right to force people to listen, or to provide us with a forum in which to speak. We each are free to try to assemble the necessary resources, by voluntary agreements with others, to publish a newspaper or a magazine (or a blog on the Web). But we have no right to force people to provide those necessary resources or to purchase or read our publications. The progressive and the Jeffersonian views of rights are not only different, they are incompatible. Any time a right claimed by anyone imposes a duty on another to undertake positive action, the alleged right cannot possibly be exercised by both parties simultaneously without logical contradiction. The progressive view of rights is often called the positivist view because such rights necessarily impose duties to undertake positive actions on others. It is part of a larger philosophy called legal positivism, which asserts that rights are whatever government says they are. The Jeffersonian view of rights is often called the negative view because the only duty imposed on others by such rights is a duty to refrain from undertaking a particular action. It is a duty to refrain from interfering with others. Moreover, in this view, government itself is bound by the rights justly claimed by all individuals. The next time you say, ‘I have a right,’ ask: ‘Who has the duty?’ If there is anyone who has a duty to do anything except refrain from interfering with you, ask: ‘On what grounds do I claim a right to subordinate that person’s will to mine?’ " - Charles W. Baird

"In recent years we have witnessed numerous marches on Washington in which one group or another has demanded new 'rights.' Frequently, such rights have not meant freedom from state control, but rather entitlement to state action, protection, or subsidy. In the process of yielding to the 'will of the people' and creating new rights, the state [while damaging the freedom of another group] invariably enlarges itself and its bureaucracy. Each new right seems to demand a new agency to guarantee it, administer it, or deliver it." - John W. Whitehead

[Quote No.50946] Need Area: Friends > General
"[Political strategy and propaganda:] The 'stalking horse' is a hunting technique that goes back thousands of years, where a hunter finds it much easier to get a drop on wild game by hiding behind an animal or a representation of an animal that the prey finds more familiar in its natural environment than a human. My favorite description of how the stalking horse technique works comes from the 1972 Robert Redford movie, 'Jeremiah Johnson', where the old trapper Bear Claw patiently explains to newbie trapper Jeremiah that they can walk behind their horses to get a good shot because 'elk don’t know how many feet a horse has'. Of course Bear Claw is right, and he and Jeremiah eat well that night. [Jeremiah and Bear Claw's hunt elk in 'Jeremiah Johnson', 1972:- --Jeremiah: Wind’s right, but he’ll just run soon as we step out of these trees. --Bear Claw: Trick to it. Walk out on this side of your horse. --Jeremiah: What if he sees our feet? --Bear Claw: Elk don’t know how many feet a horse has!]... When words are used for strategic effect [to deceive] rather than a genuine transmission of information [for the informed choice required for individual freedom and true democracy] you create a virtual stalking horse. This, of course, describes every use of words by every politician and every central banker. This is what Bernanke and Yellen and Draghi and Abe and Obama and Merkel mean when they refer to communication policy. Communication policy is the strategic use of words to shape perceptions and expectations. It’s a focus on how something is said as opposed to what is described. It’s a focus on form [style] rather than content [substance], on truthiness [believable fraud] rather than [unmitigated] truth. It’s why authenticity is as rare as a unicorn in the public world today. [As Aeschylus (525 – 456 BC) said, 'In war, truth is the first casualty.' Forewarned is forearmed!]" - Ben Hunt

"[Self-Defense and Martial Arts:] There exists a law, not written down anywhere, but inborn in our hearts, a law which comes to us not by training or custom or reading, a law which has come to us not from theory but from practice, not by instruction but by natural intuition. I refer to the law which lays down that, if our lives are endangered by plots or violence or armed robbers or enemies, any and every method of protecting ourselves is morally right." - Marcus Tullius Cicero

[Quote No.51007] Need Area: Friends > General
"[Self-Defense and Martial Arts: the right to bear arms...] The most foolish mistake we [the Nazi government] could possibly make would be to permit the conquered Eastern peoples to have arms. History teaches that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so. Indeed I would go so far as to say that the underdog is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let's not have any native militia or police. German troops alone will bear the sole responsibility for the maintenance of law and order." - Adolf Hitler
(1889-1945) German Nazi Dictator. Source: April 11, 1942, 'Hitler's Table-Talk at the Fuehrer's Headquarters 1941-1942', Dr. Henry Picker, ed. (Athenaeum Verlag, Bonn, 1951).
