More Wisdom From Will Rogers

Somebody is always telling us in the paper how to prevent war. There is
only one way in the world to prevent war and that is for every nation to
tend to its own business. Trace any war and you will find some nation was
trying to tell some other nation how to run their business. All these
nations are interfering with some other nations personal affairs but with
an eye to business. Why do we not let the rest of the world act like
it wants to.

More From Thomas Babington Macaulay

Either some Caesar or Napoleon will seize the reins of government with
a strong hand, or your Republic will be as fearfully plundered and laid
waste by Barbarians in the twentieth century as the Roman Empire was in
the fifth, with this difference, that the Huns and Vandals who ravaged
the Roman Empire came from without, and that your Huns and Vandals Will
Have Been Engendered Within Your Own Country By Your Own Institutions.

If Men Were Angels, No Government Would Be Necessary. If Angels Were To
Govern Men, Neither External Nor Internal Controls On Government Would
Be Necessary.

From Chalmers Johnson

From Helio Beltrao

The History of Ethics has been a History of Exploitation. From Time
Immemorial, Individuals Were Set Apart Into Two Groups: Those That
MUST Obey The Rules, and Those That Need Not. The People Must
Observe Ethics And Morals, While The Rulers Do Not.

From William Somerset Maugham

If A Nation Values Anything More Than Freedom, It Will Lose Its
Freedom; And The Irony Of It Is That If It Is Comfort Or Money
That It Values More, It Will Lose That Too.

From William Pfaff

Large and Firmly Implanted Bureaucratic Organizations are Almost
Impossible to Kill, even when they have No reason to continue to exist,
as NATO has not since the Soviet Union, Communism, and the Warsaw
Pact All Collapsed. There is no equivalent to Driving a Stake into the
Heart of a Bureaucracy, whose Impulse to Live is Inextinguishable.
Hence the Persisting Efforts to Force the Beast onto a New Course
Where Some Good Can Come From Its Uncheckable Energy.

From Doug Bandow

The Constitution Envisions A Limited Government Focused On Defending
Americans, Not On Transforming The Rest Of The World.

More Wisdom From Thomas Paine

If there is a Sin superior to every other it is that of Willful and
Offensive war. Most other Sins are circumscribed within narrow limits,
that is, the power of one man cannot give them a very general extension,
and many kind of Sins have only a mental existence from which no
infection arises; but He Who Is The Author Of A War, Lets Loose The
Whole Contagion Of Hell, And Opens A Vein That Bleeds A Nation To Death.

More From Justine Raimondo

Every government lives in fear of its own citizens. The fear waxes and
wanes, as the tides of public opinion and economic ups and downs crest
and wash over the political landscape. In good times, the fear is
somewhat subtle: discontent, albeit ever-present, is masked by
prosperity and contained; in bad times, the fear overflows into the
everyday life of the citizenry, which is viewed with the utmost
suspicion by the ruling elite. In Washington, they are wondering:
How Long Will They Put Up With It?

From Roger Ringer

A Man Has The Right To Dispose Of His Life And His Property In Any
Way He Chooses, Without Interference From Anyone Else. A Man Has No
Right To Dispose Of Any Other Mans Life Or Proeprty, No Matter What
His Personal Rationalizations May Be.

Still More From Frederick Douglas

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.
