"Communism and socialism is [sic] seductive.

It promises us that people will contribute

according to ability and receive according to needs.

Everybody is equal.

Everybody has a right to decent housing,

decent food and affordable medical care.

History should have taught us that when

we hear people talk this stuff -- watch out!"

-- Walter E. Williams

(1936- ) Columnist, Professor of Economics at George Mason University




"Freedom is the right to choose: the right to create for oneself

the alternatives of choice. Without the possibility of choice and

the exercise of choice, a man is not a man but a member,

an instrument, a thing."

-- Archibald MacLeish

(1892-1982) Poet, playwright, Librarian of Congress, & Assistant Secretary of State under Franklin Roosevelt

"The individual is the true reality of life.

A cosmos in himself, he does not exist for the State,

nor for that abstraction called 'society,' or the 'nation,'

which is only a collection of individuals."

-- Emma Goldman
