“At last after much
debate of things, the governor gave way that they should set corn everyman for
his own particular... That had very good success for it made all hands very
industrious, so much [more] corn was planted than otherwise would have been ...
The experience that has had in this common course and condition, tried sundrie
years, and that amongst Godly and sober men, may well evince the Vanities of
the conceit of Plato's and other ancients, applauded by some of later times;
that the taking away of propertie, and bringing into commone wealth, would make
them happy and flourishing, as if they were wiser than God.” – Governor William Bradford, Of
Plymouth Plantation: 1620-1647 
"I do recommend and assign Thursday ...
next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that
great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good
that was, that is, or that will be." - George Washington, 1789
"What is freedom? It is the sum total of all our freedoms.
To be free, on one's own responsibility, to think and to act, to speak and to
write, to labor and to exchange, to teach and to learn--this alone is to be
free." - Frederic Bastiat (1801 -
“When law and force keep a person within the bounds of justice,
they impose nothing but a mere negation. They oblige him only to abstain from
harming others. They violate neither his personality, his liberty, nor his
property. They safeguard all of these. They are defensive; they defend equally
the rights of all… But when the law, by means of its necessary agent, force,
imposes upon men a regulation of labor, a method or a subject of education, a
religious faith or creed—then the law is no longer negative; it acts positively
upon people. It substitutes the will of the legislator for their own wills; the
initiative of the legislator for their own initiatives. When this happens, the
people no longer need to discuss, to compare, to plan ahead; the law does all
this for them. Intelligence becomes a useless prop for the people; they cease
to be men; they lose their personality, their liberty, their property.” (1850) Selected Essays on Political Economy
- Frederic Bastiat (1801 - 1850)
“No one can predict the form or timing of the catastrophe that
will befall this country if our direction is not changed. No one can know what
concatenation of crises, in what progression of steps and across what interval
of years, would finally break the nation’s spirit and system of government. No
one can know whether such a breakdown would lead to an American dictatorship
directly—or indirectly, after a civil war and/or foreign war and/or protracted
Dark Ages of primitive roving gangs. What one can know is only this much: the
end result of the country’s present course is some kind of dictatorship; and
the cultural-political signs for many years now have been pointing increasingly
to one kind in particular. The signs have been pointing to an American form of
Nazism.” - Leonard Peikoff

"He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppresion; for if he violates this duty he estabalishes a precedent that will reach to himself." -Thomas Paine, Common Sense 1776
