liberty

A Quote by Peter Cajander on money, wealth, ignorance, corruption, prosperity, liberty, cartel, and debt

Representation of wealth is not the wealth. We have forgotten this. We regard money as wealth and debt as money.

A Quote by Ken Schoolland on freedom, liberty, property, time, life, future, present, past, and prosperity

You exist in time: future, present, and past. This is manifest in life, liberty, and the product of your life and liberty. The exercise of choices over life and liberty is your prosperity. To lose your life is to lose your future. To lose your liberty is to lose your present. And to lose the product of your life and liberty is to lose the portion of your past that produced it.

A Quote by Ken Schoolland on freedom, liberty, property, time, life, future, present, past, prosperity, and voluntary exchange

A product of your life and liberty is your property. Property is the fruit of your labor, the product of your time, energy, and talents. It is that part of nature that you turn to valuable use. And it is the property of others that is given to you by voluntary exchange and mutual consent. Two people who exchange property voluntarily are both better off or they wouldn't do it. Only they may rightfully make that decision for themselves.

A Quote by Ken Schoolland on life, liberty, responsibility, happiness, and free choice

Since you own your life, you are responsible for your life. You do not rent your life from others who demand your obedience. Nor are you a slave to others who demand your sacrifice. You choose your own goals based on your own values. Success and failure are both the necessary incentives to learn and to grow. Your action on behalf of others, or their action on behalf of you, is only virtuous when it is derived from voluntary, mutual consent. For virtue can only exist when there is free choice.

A Quote by Ken Schoolland on free society, force, coercion, freedom, and liberty

Having confidence in a free society is to focus on the process of discovery in the marketplace of values rather than to focus on some imposed vision or goal. Using governmental force to impose a vision on others is intellectual sloth and typically results in unintended, perverse consequences. Achieving the free society requires courage to think, to talk, and to act -- especially when it is easier to do nothing.

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 Ken Schoolland on freedom, liberty, life, and self-ownership

My philosophy is based on the principle of self-ownership. You own your life. To deny this is to imply that another person has a higher claim on your life than you do. No other person, or group of persons, owns your life nor do you own the lives of others.

A Quote by John V. Denson on war, state, liberty, freedom, economy, and society

We should learn from the war and welfare century that the greatest discovery in Western civilization was that liberty could be achieved only through the proper and effective limitation on the power of the state. It is this limitation on the power of the state which protects private property, a free-market economy, personal liberties and promotes a noninterventionist foreing policy, which, if coupled with a strong national defense, will bring peace and prosperity instead of war and welfare. It is not democracy per se which protects freedom.

A Quote by Linda and Morris Tannehill on fear, liberty, excuse, leader, leadership, and responsibility

People who fear responsibility find it easier to call for leaders, even when those leaders may become tyrants, than to accept the risk and effort of looking for solutions to the problems that beset them.

A Quote by Xia Neifion~Clark on reality, actuality, divinity, liberty, and incarnation

Our personal reality is caught within the spinning wheels of incarnation.
Liberty is in becoming conscious of - Knowing - the actuality of our true immortal Divinity.
