Yet More From Robert Higgs

We live, as F. A. Hayek observed as long ago as 1935, not in a market
system, but in a situation of interventionist chaos, where virtually
every market is so hog-tied by regulations, laws, and taxes or so
artificially pumped up by subsidies, regulatory advantages, and tax
loopholes that virtually nothing remains pure and unsullied by the
filthy hand of the interventionist state.

will laugh at their beliefs in the, disappointingly near, future.

More From Lysander Spooner

But Whether The Constitution Really Be One Thing, Or Another, This Much
Is Certain - That It Has Either Authorized Such A Government As We Have
Had, Or Has Been Powerless To Prevent It.
In Either Case, It Is Unfit To Exist.

Is Legally Forced To Accept It Or Who Puts His Confidence In It. The
Technical Criticism Of The Gold Standard Become Utterly Trivial When
Compared With This Single Merit.
