Thoughts


From Hans F. Sennholz

War cannot be driven out by War, for the use of evil breeds more evil,
hostility breeds more hostility, and the use of force breeds more force.

And More From Ludwig von Mises

To defeat the aggressors is not enough to make peace durable. The main
thing is to discard the ideology that generates war.

From Mary Bennet Peterson

If any lessons can be drawn from Prohibition, it may be that the easy call
to Pass A Law to bring about a millennium does not always work, that the
supposed cure can be worse than the disease, and that the economic law of
supply and demand can be a lot more pervasive than the countervailing
legislated law of the land.

From John C. Sparks

Expropriation of private property, without the consent of the owner, falls
squarely within the definition of stealing; certainly an immoral action.
Yet, that is the standard procedure in Federal urban renewal programs, and
the results are consistent with the surely immoral nature of the action,
notwithstanding the good intentions of civic leaders seeking to provide
better living conditions for residents of slum housing via government aid.

More From Michio Kushi

Longevity means not only how long a person lives, but also how long that
persons influence lasts after his, or her, death. Someone who leaves their
Dream lives Forever; their Disciples can carry on their work for over a
Thousand years. Theories last Several Hundred years at the most. Material
remains for only a generation or Two.
And Those Who Leave Only Troubles Have Died Whole Still Living.

From Georg W. Hagel

What experience and history teach is this: People and Governments never
have learned anything from history, or acted on principles deduced from it.

More From James Madison

It is a universal truth that the loss of liberty at home is to be charged
to the provisions against Danger, Real or Pretended, From Abroad.

From Noam Chomsky

There are many terrorist states in the world, but the United States is
unusual in that it is Officially Committed To International Terrorism.

More From Ayn Rand

Statism needs war; a free country does not. Statism survives by looting;
a free country survives by producing.

From James Bovard

Freedom Is Whatever The President Says It Is, Pending Revision.

More From Ernest Hemingway

You can wipe out your opponents. But if you do it unjustly you become
eligible for being wiped out yourself.

They wrote in the old days that it is sweet and fitting to die for your
country. But in modern war, there is nothing sweet nor fitting in your
dying. You will die like a dog for absolutely No Good Reason.

From Jacobo Timerman

We believed ourselves indestructable. We watched only the madmen outside
our frontiers, and we remained defenseless against our own madmen.

From Arthur Schopenhauer

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it
is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

From Noam Chomsky

Everybody is worried about stopping terrorism. Well, there is a really
easy way: Stop Participating In It.

From Aldous Huxley

What is absurd and monstrous about war is that men who have no personal
quarrel should be trained to murder one another in cold blood.
