From Helen Keller

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.

From Darryl W. Johnson, Jr.

It is a mistake for the government to consider the problems of the sick apart from those of society as a whole...The broader problem is, in a moral sense, one of promoting respect for the individual and the furtherance of initiative and self-providence; in an economic sense, one of increasing production for the benefit of all citizens; and in a political sense, one of removing government as a battlefield for special favor and substituting cohesion and solidarity for division and disintegration.

From Adam Smith

From Henry Ford

More From Benjamin Franklin

There is no kind of dishonesty into which otherwise good people more easily and frequently fall than that of defrauding the government.

From John F. Kennedy

"The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie-deliberate, contrived, and dishonest, but the myth-persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic. Belief in myths allows the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought."

Wisdom From John W. Whitehead

If The Government can tell you what you can and cannot do within the privacy of your home, whether it relates to what you eat, what you smoke or whom you love, you no longer have any rights whatsoever within your home.
If Government Officials can fine and arrest you for growing vegetables in your front yard, praying with friends in your living room, installing solar panels on your roof, and raising chickens in your backyard, you are no longer the owner of your property. If school officials can punish your children for what they do or say while at home or in your care, your children are not your own-They Are The Property Of The State.
If Government Agents can invade your home, break down your doors, kill your dog, damage your furnishings and terrorize your family, your property is no longer private and secure-it belongs to the government. Likewise, if police can forcefully draw your blood, strip search you, and probe you intimately, your body is no longer your own, either.
This is what a world without the Fourth Amendment looks like, where the lines between private and public property have been so blurred that private property is reduced to little more than something the Government can use to Control, Manipulate and Harass you to suit its own purposes, and you the homeowner and citizen have been reduced to little more than a tenant or serf in bondage to an inflexible landlord.

From Mark Antin

"The Czar was always sending us commands - you shall not do this and you shall not do that - till there was very little left that we might do, except pay tribute and die."

From Nelson Mandela

"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion, People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite."

"As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I did not leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I would still be in prison,"

From George Carlin

"You know how I define the economic and social classes in this country? The upper class keeps all of the money, pays none of the taxes. The middle class pays all of the taxes, does all of the work. The poor are there just to scare the crap out of the middle class. Keep em showing up at those jobs."

From Uri Avnery

The United States Congress would jump to repeal the Ten Commandments if so ordered by Israel.

Thanksgiving From Matthew A. Givens

Thanksgiving, far from being the simple and uninspiring story of a group of
people learning how to farm, is actually a celebration of what has made
America itself great. It is the story of people working together by working
for themselves first, and in so doing, improving the standard of living for
everyone. These are the American ideas we hold dear.
As you sit down to your table laden with turkey, dressing and pumpkin pie,
remember the true story of Thanksgiving, and what it means to all.

More From Lew Rockwell

The State, for the Fascist, is the ideal organization for realizing a societys and an individuals potential economically, socially, and even spiritually. Individual rights, and the individual himself, are strictly subordinate to the States great and glorious goals for the nation. In foreign affairs, the Fascist Attitude is reflected in a belligerent chauvinism, a contempt for other peoples, and a society-wide reverence for soldiers and the martial virtues.
