"I am certain that nothing has done so much
to destroy the juridical safeguards of individual freedom
as the striving after this mirage of social justice."
-- Friedrich August von Hayek
(1899-1992), Nobel Laureate of Economic Sciences 1974

"The possession of power over others is inherently destructive both
to the possessor of the power and to those over whom it is exercised."
-- George D. Herron

"Freedom is independence of the compulsory will of another,
and in so far as it tends to exist with
the freedom of all according to a universal law,
it is the one sole original inborn right belonging
to every man in virtue of his humanity."
-- Immanuel Kant
(1724-1804) German philosopher
