For you see, the world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.
But our society — unlike most in the world — presupposes that freedom and liberty are in a frame of reference that makes the individual, not government, the keeper of his tastes, beliefs, and ideas; that is the philosophy of the First Amendment; and it is this article of faith that sets us apart from most nations in the world.
Inflation: That’s the price we pay for those government benefits everybody thought were free.
I don’t understand how people who cannot predict the weather five days in advance can predict the climate decades from now.
Central bankers and politicians have bankrupted the world. A lot of the distractions you see in the media and on the global-stage are meant to cover-up that reality. Most people just don’t know it yet.
No matter how much people on the left talk about compassion, they have no compassion for the taxpayers.
No one will really understand politics until they understand that politicians are not trying to solve our problems. They are trying to solve their own problems — of which getting elected and re-elected are number one and number two. Whatever is number three is far behind.
In the general course of human nature, a power over a man’s subsistence amounts to a power over his will.
Any power must be an enemy of mankind which enslaves the individual by power and by force, whether it arises under the Fascist or the Communist flag. All that is valuable in human society depends upon the opportunity for development accorded to the individual.
Inflation is in effect a hidden tax. The money that people have saved is robbed of part of its purchasing power, which is quietly transferred to the government that issues new money.
