From James Mussatti

Our most formidable fortress of defense in time of stress still remains the Constitution of the United States. But it is only as good as our understanding and defense of the purpose for which it was drafted. Eternal vigilance and personal responsibility are still the price of human liberty.

From Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

A man dies when he refuses to stand up for that which is right. A man dies when he refuses to stand up for justice. A man dies when he refuses to take a stand for that which is true.

From My Grandfather Robert Lee

You can not do anything about the weather and you can not do anything about the way that other people feel about you; you have to learn how to deal with all of them!!

From Nelson Mandela

It is said that no one truly knows a nation until one has been inside its jails. A nation should not be judged by how it treats its highest citizens, but its lowest ones.

From Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

Simply by being compelled to keep constantly on his guard, a man may grow so weak as to be unable to any longer defend himself.

From Milton Friedman

The great virtue of free enterprise is that it forces existing businesses to meet the test of the market continuously, to produce products that meet consumer demands at lowest cost, or else be driven from the market. It is a profit-and-loss system. Naturally, existing businesses generally prefer to keep out competitors in other ways. That is why the business community, despite its rhetoric, has so often been a major enemy of truly free enterprise.

From Dan Sanchez

Do do not avert your eyes, and do not be silent in the face of evil. Start learning the truth about the empire and its atrocities, and start speaking out against war.

More From Thomas Paine

Truth never envelops itself in mystery, and the mystery in which it is at any time enveloped is the work of its antagonist, and never of itself.

From Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Treat people as if they were what they ought to be, and you help them to become what they are capable of being.

From Frederick Douglass

Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is in an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob, and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.

From Leo Tolstoy

Governments need armies to protect them from their enslaved and oppressed subjects.

From Slyvestro Petro

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.

From Robert LeFevre

No major culture has ever emerged that was built upon possession and force exclusively. For production to occur there must be long periods of time in which peaceful non-molestation is the order of the day. Force is a poor tool with which to obtain lasting calm and serenity. Production and trade, the devices which build what we call civilizations, are erected on ideas of ownership rather than ideas of possession. It is in this sense that human society is constructed upon a moral base: a recognition of the difference between right and wrong. There must be an understanding of the sanctity of boundary, and a broad adherence to support of such sanctity, for a culture to endure or advance.

From Alexis de Tocqueville

Our contemporaries are only too ready to doubt the existence of free will because as individuals they feel frustrated by their weakness no matter which way they turn, yet they are still quite prepared to recognize the strength and independence of men joined together in a social body. One should be careful not to obscure this idea, because the goal is to exalt mens souls, not to complete the task of laying them low.

From Calvin Coolidge

All growth depends upon activity. There is no development physically or intellectually without effort, and effort means work. Work is not a curse; it is the prerogative of intelligence, the only means to manhood, and the measure of civilization.
