“The question of how many
courses of action are open to a person is, of course, very important. But it is
a different question from that of how far in acting he can follow his own plans
and intentions, to what extent the pattern of his conduct is of his own design,
directed toward ends of which he has been persistently striving rather than
toward necessities created by others in order to make him do what they want.
Whether he is free or not does not depend on the range of choice but on whether
he can expect to shape his course of action in accordance with his present
intentions, or whether somebody else has power so as to manipulate the
conditions as to make him act according to that person's will rather than his
own.” - Friedrich A. Hayek, The
Constitution of Liberty 
“The right of self defence is the
first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to
confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing
armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under
any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already
annihilated, is on the brink of destruction.” - St. George Tucker
"Hitler’s dictatorship differed in one fundamental point from all
itspredecessors in history. It
was the first dictatorship in the present period ofmodern technical development, a
dictatorship which made complete use of alltechnical
means for the domination of its own country. Through technicaldevices like the radio and the
loud-speaker, eighty million people weredeprived
of independent thought. It was thereby possible to subject them to thewill of one man." - Albert
Speer; [Berthold Konrad Hermann Albert Speer]

"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
