“The main issue in
present-day political struggles is whether society should be organized on the
basis of private ownership of the means of production (capitalism, the market
system) or on the basis of public control of the means of production
(socialism, communism, planned economy). Capitalism means free enterprise,
sovereignty of the consumers in economic matters, and sovereignty of the voters
in political matters. Socialism means full government control of every sphere
of the individual's life and the unrestricted supremacy of the government in
its capacity as central board of production management. There is no compromise
possible between these two systems. Contrary to popular fallacy there is no
middle way, no third system possible as a pattern of a permanent social order.
The citizens must choose between capitalism and socialism or, as many Americans
say, between the American and the Russian way of life.” – Ludwig von Mises, Bureaucracy
"The eyes of the world being thus on our
Country, it is put the more on its good behavior, and under the greater
obligation also, to do justice to the Tree of Liberty by an exhibition of
the fine fruits we gather from it." - James
Madison, letter to James Monroe, 1824
intends that eternal peace shall reign — the goal of all democratic institutions.
But the means by which this peace is to be gained are very different from those
employed by the democrats. It will not rest on the power to change peacefully
rulers and ruling policy, but on the fact that the regime is made permanent,
and that rulers and policy are unchangeable. This, too, is peace; not the peace
of progress which Liberalism strives to attain but the peace of the graveyard.
It is not the peace of pacifists but of pacifiers, of men of violence who seek
to create peace by subjection. Every absolutist makes such peace by setting up
an absolute domination, and it lasts just as long as his domination can be maintained."
 - Ludwig von Mises (1881 - 1973)

"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
