"We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force."

 

                                                                                                                                                   Ayn Rand

"The only distinction between freedom and slavery consists in this: In the former state a man is governed by the laws to which he has given his consent, either in person or by his representative; in the latter, he is governed by the will of another. In the one case, his life and property are his own; in the other, they depend upon the pleasure of his master. It is easy to discern which of these two states is preferable. No man in his senses can hesitate in choosing to be free, rather than a slave." 

- Alexander Hamilton

“The welfare state is the oldest con game in the world. First you take people's money away quietly and then you give some of it back to them flamboyantly.”

“Monsters exist, but they are too few in number to be truly dangerous. More dangerous are the common men, the functionaries ready to believe and to act without sufficient knowledge.”

" Tous les documents ont été détruits ou falsifiés, tous les livres récrits, tous les tableaux repeints. Toutes les statues, les rues, les édifices, ont changé de nom, toutes les dates ont été modifiées. Et le processus continue tous les jours, à chaque minute. L’histoire s’est arrêtée. Rien n’existe qu’un présent éternel dans lequel le Parti a toujours raison."

 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           George Orwell (1984)

"Si tous les autres acceptaient le mensonge imposée par le Parti — si tous les rapports racontaient la même chose —, le mensonge passait dans l’histoire et devenait vérité. “Celui qui a le contrôle du passé, disait le slogan du Parti, a le contrôle du futur. Celui qui a le contrôle du présent a le contrôle du passé.”

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.” -  Daniel Webster

"Un homme libre doit pouvoir supporter que ses semblables agissent et vivent d'une façon différente de celle qu'il estime être la bonne et il doit perdre l'habitude d'appeler la police dès que quelque chose ne lui convient pas." - Ludwig von Mises
