"The control of the production of wealth is the control of human life itself."

-- Hilaire Belloc

(1870-1953) French-born British writer





"To blindly trust government is to automatically vest it with excessive power. To distrust government is simply to trust humanity - to trust in the ability of average people to peacefully, productively coexist without some official policing their every move. The State is merely another human institution - less creative than Microsoft, less reliable than Federal Express, less responsible than the average farmer husbanding his land, and less prudent than the average citizen spending his own paycheck."

-- James Bovard

(1956- ) American author, lecturer

"Usurpation, the exercise of power not granted, is not legitimized by repetition."
