Or Retarded; It Can Only Be Stopped.

More From Robert Higgs

In World War II, The Belligerents Plumbed New Depths Of Depravity:
Operation Of Mass-Destruction Death Camps, Torture Of Every Conceivable
Kind, Terror Bombing And Other Attacks Systematically Aimed At Civilian
Populations, Crowned By The Gratuitous Atomic Bombing Of Two Large,
Defenseless Cities. I Am Aware That Some People Still Defend Some Of
These Heinous Actions, But In My Mind Nothing The War Achieved Can
Justify Them.

From Herbert Spencer

The Ultimate Result Of Shielding Men From The Effects Of Folly

From The First Inaugural Of Thomas Jefferson March 4, 1801

A Wise And Frugal Government.. Shall Restrain Men From Injuring One
Another, Shall Leave Them Otherwise Free To Regulate Their Own Pursuits
Of Industry And Improvement, And Shall Not Take From The Mouth Of Labor
The Bread It Has Earned. This Is The Sum Of Good Government!

From Marc Faber

One Stimulus Will Lead To The Next One, And Then More Money Printing,
And Then The Collapse. The US Government Will Go Bust, Then It Will
Go To War. Buy A Farm And A Gun.

From Jeremy Grantham

It Should Be Obvious From Simple Arithmetic That Population Growth Is
On A Direct Collision Course With Increasingly Scarce Resources.

When You See Corruption Being Rewarded And Honesty Becoming A Self-
Sacrifice - You May Know That Your Society Is Doomed.

Ms Karen DeCoster on Barack Obama

Now That The Leader Of The Machine Is Half Black, Nothing Has Changed In
The Way We Need To Look At The State. He Is As Much A Part Of The
Establishment - Or More - Than Any Modern President

More From Friedrich A. Hayek

Responsibility, Not To A Superior, But To Your Own Conscience, The
Awareness Of A Duty Not Exacted By Compulsion, The Necessity To Decide
Which Of The Things You Hold Dear Are To Be Sacrificed For The Sake Of
Others, And To Bear All Of The Consequences Of Your Own Decision, Are
The Very Essence Of Any Morals Which Deserve The Name.

From Max Weber

Government Is That Entity Which Has A Monopoly On Force
Within A Prescribed Geographic Area

Yet More From Ludwig von Mises

No One Can Find A Safe Way Out For Himself If Society Is Sweeping
Towards Destruction. Therefore Everyone, In His Own Interests, Must
Thrust Himself Vigorously Into The Intellectual Battle. No One Can
Stand Aside With Unconcern; The Interests Of Everyone Hang On The
Result. Whether He So Chooses To Or Not, Every Man Is Drawn Into The
Great Historical Struggle, The Decisive Battle Into Which Our Present
Epoch Has Plunged Us.

Yet More From Thomas Jefferson

Though Written Constitutions May Be Violated In Moments Of Passion Or
Delusion, Yet They Furnish A Text To Which Those Who Are Watchful May
Once Again Rally And Recall The People. They Fix, Too, For The People
The Principles Of Their Political Creed.
