    “Man can now fly in the air like a bird, swim under the ocean like a fish, he can burrow into the ground like a mole. Now if only he could walk the earth like a man, this would be paradise.”
    …’tis not too late to build a better world.”
    “You have demonstrated what people can do if they work together, rather than work against; if you build a cooperative society rather than a jungle society…”
    "How do you talk to a man about saving his soul if he's got a toothache?"
    Individual Rights and Freedoms
    Self-Interest
    Such is the nature of men, that howsoever they may acknowledge many others to be more witty, or more eloquent, or more learned; yet they will hardly believe there be many so wise as themselves
    A man cannot lay down the right of resisting them that assault him by force, to take away his life.
    The right of nature... is the liberty each man hath to use his own power, as he will himself, for the preservation of his own nature; that is to say, of his own life.
    Thomas Hobbes 1588-1679
  • 3. Milton Friedman 1912-2006
    The government solution to a problem is usually as bad as the problem.
    There's no such thing as a free lunch.
    The black market was a way of getting around government controls. It was a way of enabling the free market to work. It was a way of opening up, enabling people.
    I'm in favor of legalizing drugs. According to my values system, if people want to kill themselves, they have every right to do so. Most of the harm that comes from drugs is because they are illegal.
    Economic Freedom Self-Interest Competition Private Property
    "It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest
    Every individual necessarily labors to render the annual revenue of society as great as he can. He generally neither intends to promote the public interest, nor knows how much he is promoting it. He intends only his own gain, and he is, in this, as in many other cases, led by an invisible hand to promote an end which was not part of his intention
    The real tragedy of the poor is the poverty of their aspirations.
    Adam Smith 1723-1790
