    A few quick words from the man himself:

    “The champions of socialism call themselves progressives, but they recommend a system which is characterized by rigid observance of routine and by a resistance to every kind of improvement.

    The worst evils which mankind has ever had to endure were inflicted by bad governments.

    Socialism is not in the least what it pretends to be.

    The champions of socialism call themselves progressives, but they recommend a system which is characterized by rigid observance of routine and by a resistance to every kind of improvement. They call themselves liberals, but they are intent upon abolishing liberty. They call themselves democrats, but they yearn for dictatorship. They call themselves revolutionaries, but they want to make the government omnipotent. They promise the blessings of the Garden of Eden, but they plan to transform the world into a gigantic post office. Every man but one a subordinate clerk in a bureau.

    Innovators and creative geniuses cannot be reared in schools.

    Government cannot make man richer, but it can make him poorer.”
