“The citizen is sovereign
only when he can retain and enjoy the fruits of his labor. If the government
has first claim on his property he must learn to genuflect before it. When the
right of property is abrogated, all the other rights of the individual are undermined,
and to speak of the sovereign citizen who has no absolute right to property is
to talk nonsense. It is like saying that the slave is free because he is
allowed to do anything he wants to do (even vote, if you wish) except to own
what he produces.” – Frank Chodorov, The
Freeman [August 1990]
"Now, one of the most essential
branches of English liberty is the freedom of one’s house. A man’s house is his
castle; and while he is quiet, he is as well guarded as a prince in his castle.
This writ, if it should be declared legal, would totally annihilate this
privilege. Customhouse officers may enter our houses when they please; we are
commanded to permit their entry. Their menial servants may enter, may break
locks, bars, and everything in their way; and whether they break through malice
or revenge, no man, no court can inquire. Bare suspicion without oath is
sufficient." - James Otis
“Let us banish from political economy all expressions borrowed
from the military vocabulary: to fight
on equal terms, conquer, crush, choke off, be defeated, invasion, tribute.
What do these terms signify? Squeeze them and nothing comes out. Or rather,
what comes out is absurd errors and harmful preconceptions. Such expressions
are inimical to international cooperation, hinder the formation of a peaceful,
ecumenical, and indissoluble union of the peoples of the world, and retard the
progress of mankind.” - Frederic Bastiat
(1801 - 1850)
“If you ask us why force should be used to
defend the rights of self-ownership, and not for any other purpose, we reply by
reminding you that the rights of self-ownership are... supreme moral rights, of
higher rank than all other human interests or institutions; and therefore force
may be employed on behalf of these rights, but not in opposition to them. All social and political arrangements, all
employments of force, are subordinate to these universal rights, and must
receive just such character and form as are required in the interest of these
rights.” - Auberon Herbert

"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
