Ludwig von Mises: "Freedom in society means that a man depends as much upon other people as other people depend on him." - Economic Policy

Ludwig von Mises: "Under capitalism, material success depends on the appreciation of a mans achievements on the part of the sovereign consumers. In this regard there is no difference between the services rendered by a manufacturer and those rendered by a producer, an actor or a playwright." - The Anti-Capitalistic Mentality, pg. 31
"When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world—'No. You move.'"

Referring to this court brief the Expelled producers made to show that it wasn't plagiarism to blatantly rip off someone else's work and pretend it's your own.

The State:  Because nothing says "We Care for you./We Love you." quite like a gun to someone else's head.

"To those with a continued religious faith in the state, I say the authoritarian but also benevolent government you want is a paradox. It does not exist and cannot be created no matter how badly you desire it. Just as atheism is only a solution to futile mysticism, anarchy is only a solution to one problem, but one which is quite pervasive– the irrational belief that an organization which is inherently criminal can also be benevolent. Anarchy is not an answer in itself. It’s simply a rejection of the false answer." - Dale Everett

Milk?
Seriously... that is seriously fucked up. I mean what's next? Goverment banning food in general because you can choke on it if it's inpropperly chewed and you swallow to fast?

"Looking back, I had tendencies towards anarcho-capitalism even back in high school.  I resented being herded around day in and day out from start to finish and I still resent all those years lost today.  I was bullied too for the unforgivable crime of being different and I resented them for making it possible for it to happen.
Grab your freedom with both hands kids and don't let anyone get their filthy hands on it.  It is yours and yours alone."--Lord T Hawkeye in an AIM convo with me.

This was originally an off-hand snarky comment of mine, but thinking back on it I'm actually kind of proud of it:

"A liberal is a generous person. A libertarian is a generous person who understands the concept of opportunity costs." --Me, in the comments of this video

Stargazer5781: "Statism is all well and good until you realize that people in the state are human too. If your claim is that people need to be ordered around and controlled, who will order around and control the people in the state? Statism necessitates the existence of gods and only made sense back when people thought the heads of state were gods. When you realize gods don't exist, all arguments for a state self-detonate.

P.S. Look up psychological projection on wikipedia."--One of the highest rated comments on this video

Ludwig von Mises: "No proletarian contributed anything to the construction of antiliberal teachings. At the root of the genealogical tree of modern socialism we meet the name of the depraved scion of one of the most eminent aristocratic families of royal France." - Omnipotent Government

Ludwig von Mises: "New experience can force us to discard or modify inferences we have drawn from previous experience." - Epistemological Problems of Economics
"When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world—'No. You move.'"

My apologies to Shane and the other minarchists in advance for this:

"Minarchists, I love you like I love a pet that just won’t potty-train. I know you’re trying your darnedest, but it sure is frustrating. I’m going to keep making fun of you, but just remember that it’s playful ribbing from a friend; an incredibly condescending and tactless friend, but a friend nonetheless."--Dale Everett, Anarchists & Minarchists & Socialists, oh, my!

The article linked is also a win quote.
"When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world—'No. You move.'"
