Coercion in a social system acts like friction in a physical system, it reduces its efficiency . . . Spencer Heath in Citadel, Market, and Altar
Give me your poor, huddled masses yearning to breathe free, and I will give them taxes, regulations, restrictions, and every manner of unfairness ever created by humans saddled with the illusion that they can decide what is best for someone else's welfare.
The individual, like the business professional, knows what's best in a given situation, and, given the freedom to do so, will take that best action.
The forces of coercion are prying open the shell that contains the living muscle and spirit of the American people -- will we resist those forces and keep our muscles and spirit alive, free to open and close at will, like any oyster in Nature, or will we give up and settle for freedom on the half shell? --- from the Preface
The Pledge of Freedom
I pledge Allegiance to this Land and to the Freedom for which it stands, One Country Under God, with Liberty and Justice for All.
