“A dictator may deem the
conduct of the consumers rather foolish. Why should they be so crazy about
individually fashioned clothes? He may be right from the point of view of his
own value judgments. But the trouble is that valuation is personal, individual,
and arbitrary. The democracy of the market consists in the fact that people
themselves make their choices and that no dictator has the power to force them
to submit to his value judgments.” – Ludwig
von Mises, Human
“The mission of the law is not to oppress persons and plunder
them of their property, even though the law may be acting in a philanthropic
spirit. Its mission is to protect persons and property. If you exceed this
proper limit—if you attempt to make the law religious, fraternal, equalizing,
philanthropic, industrial, literary, or artistic—you will then be lost in an
uncharted territory, in vagueness and uncertainty, in a forced utopia, or, even
worse, in a multitude of utopias, each striving to seize the law and impose it
upon you. This is true because fraternity and philanthropy, unlike justice, do
not have a precise limit. Once started, where will you stop? And where will the
law stop itself?” - Frederic Bastiat
(1801 - 1850)

"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
