That is why it is ready to use any kind of means without hesitation. And of course it does - under the banners of the most noble ideas." - Vladimir Bukovsky

The free market means willing exchange; it is impersonal justice in the economic sphere and excludes coercion, plunder, theft, protectionism, and other anti-free market ways by which goods and services change hands." - Leonard Read

"First, individual rights cannot be sacrificed for the sake of the general good, and second, the principles of justice that specify these rights cannot be premised on any particular vision of the good life.

"So, in our wisdom and fair justice we go on "Giving to dust that is a little gilt, More laud than gold e'er dusted;" proclaiming the merits of the bad wine, and making it, by every token, as enticing as we can; and blessing our stars that the good will be found out by its flavor "without our stir." As it is inestimable, we seek not to win esteem for it; as it is beyond all praise, we bestow no praises upon it." - Samuel Laman Blanchard

"If money doesn't come with misery, then it's not at all interesting and it's not at all fair.

We tend to live in a culture now where people have unbelievable, inconceivable amounts of money without any kind of remorse." - Lawrence Douglas

"The "Lucifer Effect" describes the point in time when an ordinary, normal person first crosses the boundary between good and evil to engage in an evil action.
