Money power means budget power and it is folly to imagine that the citizen can control government unless he can control its budget.

A Quote by E. C. Riegel on money, politics, money-making, prosperity, wealth, govern, government, and control

As long as we cling to the superstition that we must look to government for money supply, instead of requiring it to look to us, just so long must we remain the subjects of government and it is vain to follow this or that policy or party or ism in the hope of salvation. We can control government and our own destiny only through our money power and until we exert that power it is useless for us to debate the pros and cons of political programs.

A Quote by E. C. Riegel on money, politics, money-making, prosperity, wealth, govern, and government

When man has mastered money he shall have mastered not only his economic problem of prosperity but also his political problem, for he will see that money has no place in state functions, and, the money power being entirely in his own hands, he will easily master the state and clearly define its services. Thus money must be seen as the means of mastery of all economic and political problems. Until we have mastered money we shall not master any of our problems. Not money, but a false money system, is the root of all evil.

A Quote by Ken Schoolland on free society, force, coercion, freedom, liberty, slavery, property, theft, and government

At times some people use force or fraud to take from others without willful, voluntary consent. Normally, the initiation of force to take life is murder, to take liberty is slavery, and to take property is theft. It is the same whether these actions are done by one person acting alone, by the many acting against a few, or even by officials with fine hats and titles.

A Quote by Earon on academia, university, college, education, corruption, academic life, business, religion, industry, and government

Academia was created by business, religion and government as an enclosure for intelligent, altruistic people to keep them occupied and feeling important, and distracted from exposing corruption and working for change.  Fortunately, this strategy hasn't always succeeded.

A Quote by Linda and Morris Tannehill on government, paradox, and violence

The contradiction of hiring an agency of institutionalized violence to protect us from violence is even more foolhardy than buying a cat to protect one's parakeet.

A Quote by Magus Peter H. Gilmore on government, democracy, pursuit of happiness, freedom, diversity, and individuality

"...when a nation encourages the individual pursuit of happiness,  there is no guarantee that everyone is going to like what everyone else  is doing. That is part of freedom—tolerance of diversity."
