The Electric Commentary

Wednesday, April 05, 2006

Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner.

Here is a website full of great libertarian quotes, like:

Where morality is present, laws are unnecessary. Without morality, laws are unenforceable. – Anonymous


and:

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. – C. S. Lewis


and:

Vices are simply the errors which a man makes in his search after his own happiness. Unlike crimes, they imply no malice toward others, and no interference with their persons or property. – Lysander Spooner


Enjoy.
