“The price system has two
outstanding features. First, it is by all odds the most efficient system of
social organization ever conceived. It makes it possible for huge multitudes to
cooperate effectively, multitudes who may hardly know each other's existence,
or whose personal attitudes toward one another may be indifference or
hostility. Second, it affords a maximum of individual freedom and a minimum of
coercion. And since people can cooperate effectively in production even when
their attitudes on other issues are hostile, there is no need for unity and
conformity in religion, politics, recreation, and language--or even in
patriotism and good will except in the very broadest sense.” - W. Allen Wallis, The Freeman [July
“The only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised
over any member of a civilized community, against his will, is to prevent harm
to others. His own good, either physical
or moral, is not a sufficient warrant.
He cannot rightfully be compelled to do or forebear because it will make
him happier, because, in the opinions of others, to do so would be wise, or
even right... In the part [of his conduct] which merely concerns himself, his
independence is, of right, absolute. Over himself, over his own body and mind, the
individual is sovereign.” On Liberty
(1859) - John Stuart Mill
“To try to improve the quality of life in a given society by
centralizing it under political leadership is futile. Such efforts simply diffuse responsibility
and reduce the likelihood of moral improvement. Needed, instead, is a
concentrated effort to restore to people both their rights and their
responsibilities. Those who value human life and look for it to be lived well
should encourage progress toward a free society.” - Tibor R. Machan

"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
