"And THIS is the contradiction of the Statist. People are evil so they need to be ruled over by a Government.

But who’s going to make up that Government aside from those same evil people; who, of course, will likely end up being even more evil, because they will have control over a monopoly of the initiation of force?" --Me modifying something Shane once said.

The irony!
It burns! lol!

"Those who think that the destruction of war increases total 'demand' forget that demand and supply are merely two sides of the same coin.  They are the same thing looked at from different directions.  Supply creates demand because at bottom it is demand.  The supply of the thing they make is all that people have, in fact, to offer in exchange for the things they want.  In this sense the farmers’ supply of wheat constitutes their demand for automobiles and other goods.  All this is inherent in the modern division of labor and in an exchange economy." --Henry Hazlitt, Economics in One Lesson

Yes, but Hazlitt is talking about the economy when taken as a whole.

"This fundamental fact, it is true, is obscured for most people (including some reputedly brilliant economists) through such complications as wage payments and the indirect form in which virtually all modern exchanges are made through the medium of money. John Stuart Mill and other classical writers, though they sometimes failed to take sufficient account of the complex consequences resulting from the use of money, at least saw through 'the monetary veil' to the underlying realities. To that extent they were in advance of many of their present-day critics, who are befuddled by money rather than instructed by it. Mere inflation—that is, the mere issuance of more money, with the consequence of higher wages and prices may look like the creation of more demand. But in terms of the actual production and exchange of real things it is not." --Henry Hazlitt, Economics in One Lesson
