"Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialists conclude that we object to its being done at all. We disapprove of state education. Then the socialists say that we are opposed to any education. We object to a state religion. Then the socialists say that we want no religion at all. We object to a state-enforced equality. Then they say that we are against equality. And so on, and so on. It is as if the socialists were to accuse us of not wanting persons to eat because we do not want the state to raise grain."
— Frédéric Bastiat (The Law)

"Alright you Primitive Screwheads, listen up! You see this? This... is my boomstick! The twelve-gauge double-barreled Remington. S-Mart's top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?"

"It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a 'dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. Yet this sort of aggressive ignorance is inherent in the creed of anarcho-communism." --Murray N. Rothbard, The Death Wish of the Anarcho-Communists

"American conservatives can always be counted on to denounce a lame-duck president of their own party who is sinking in the polls. They worked hard to make Bush president, refrained from criticizing his egregious policies for years, focused all their ire on a mythically powerful left, and now that things aren't working out so well, they bail out.

"The conservatives denounce their presidents for the same reason that the left denounces Stalin: they want to evade responsibility for the results of the policies imposed by monsters that they themselves created. When the left does this, we know not to take it too seriously. If you give the state the right to expropriate all private property, you can't be too surprised when dictators take over.

"Similarly, when the whole of your intellectual enterprise has been wrapped up in celebrating the nation-state and its wars, condemning civil liberties, casting aspersions on religious liberty, and heralding the jail and the electric chair as the answer to all of society’s problems, you can't complain when your policies produce tin-pot despotic imperialists like Bush. You have no intellectual apparatus with which to beat them back."

--Lew Rockwell, The Great Conservative Hoax

"Economics does not say that isolated government interference with the prices of only one commodity or a few commodities is unfair, bad, or unfeasible. It says that such interference produces results contrary to its purpose, that it makes conditions worse, not better, from the point of view of the government and those backing its interference." Ludwig Von Mises, Human Action p. 758; p. 764 Price control

"'So Capitalism refers to [t]he control of means of produ[c]tion. You can have state capitalism and private capitalism.'

No, you can't.

Capitalism refers to private ownership of capital goods. Ownership entails full control over those capital goods.

State capitalism is an oxymoron. The proper term for what you want to describe is called Fascism--and it is *not* Capitalist." --BigDaddyBongos in response to oraci.

Y'all like Carlin quotes, eh?
Even this one?

" One of the more pretentious political self-descriptions is "Libertarian." People think it puts them above the fray. It sounds fashionable, and to the uninitiated, faintly dangerous. Actually, it's just one more bullshit political philosophy. " George Carlin in Napalm and Silly Putty

Nickelodeon2002:  “A Bachelor's degree is now worth what a high school diploma was worth 30 years ago.  The dream of easier success has been propagated via the education establishment to promote their own well being rather then that of the student.  I have no doubt that a masters degree, then a PhD will soon be the ‘requirement’ for easy success, at great expense to the student.  At some point in time however the quality of instruction and its actual economic value is going factor into the system.  Can u say ‘Ed’ bubble?”
