A Quote by Henry Hazlitt on state, government, peace, and foundation

There may have been somewhere, as a few eighteenth-century philosophers dreamed, a group of peaceful men who got together one evening after work and drew up a Social Contract to form the state. But nobody has been able to find an actual record of it. Practically all the governments whose origins are historically established were the result of conquest—of one tribe by another, one city by another, one people by another. Of course there have been constitutional conventions, but they merely changed the working rules of governments already in being.

If "con" is negative, and "pro" is positive, why is the United States run by congress, yet we never progress?

A Quote by Frank on government, politics, culture, knowledge, society, principles, process, popular, and misconception

When people don't understand the principles of government or understand the execution of the process of government, government suffers at the hand of popular misconception.

Fascism should be more properly be called corporatism, since it is the merger of state and corporate power.

A Quote by Justin Alexander Samra on truth, freedom, politics, government, motivation, life, hard work, and society

When any government, but especially the government of a Democracy or a Republic takes upon itself the responsibility of making people equal as in an identical sense - of talent, skill, ability, ambition, and social worth - than a free society cannot stand. The people must be allowed to fail or succeed based on their own merit, free of government interference and dependence. Free societies are unfortunately fragile structures by nature and can always be destroyed from within by corrupting forces when surrounded by inattentive eyes. Only when the people are self-motivated, self sufficient, independent, and ever vigilant against government power, control, and intrusion can liberty, freedom, peace, and prosperity flourish.

A Quote by Ludwig VonMises on ludwig von mises, liberty, libertarian, government, and parasitic government

"It is important to remember that government interference always means either violent action or the threat of such action. The funds that a government spends for whatever purposes are levied by taxation. And taxes are paid because the taxpayers are afraid of offering resistance to the tax gatherers. They know that any disobedience or resistance is hopeless. As long as this is the state of affairs, the government is able to collect the money that it wants to spend. Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen. The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning. Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom."  Ludwig Von Mises

A Quote by George Washington on government, reason, force, politics, freedom, liberty, economics, and society

Government is not reason; it is not eloquence. It is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.

A Quote by George Washington on government, freedom, liberty, history, and laws

The marvel of all history is the patience with which men and women submit to burdens unnecessarily laid upon them by their governments.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on society, state, government, coercion, liberty, and freedom

I look upon an increase of the power of the State with the greatest fear, because although while apparently doing good by minimizing exploitation, it does the greatest harm to mankind by destroying individuality, which lies at the root of all progress. We know of so many cases where men have adopted trusteeship, but none where the State has really lived for the poor.

Gandhi (1869 - 1948)
