Text Quotes
Statism, which forces all of us within its orbit, is nothing but a political system of organized plunder, managed by every conceivable type of pressure group.  (Leonard Read Quotes) Politicians, bureaucrats, editors, new commentators, ‘economists’ teachers,’ and other word artists who denounce private enterprise and praise socialism are their own worst enemies...these attackers are unwittingly destroying the sources of their own livelihood. They kill the geese that lay the golden eggs - and don’t know it!  (Leonard Read Quotes) ...the greatest political problem facing the world today is...how to curb the oppressive power of government, how to keep it within reasonable bounds.  (Leonard Read Quotes) If we remove the hope of profit as a means to alleviate misfortune - poverty, illness, misery, disaster - we shall increase our misfortunes and make them permanent.  (Leonard Read Quotes) Whenever government assumed responsibility for the security, welfare, and prosperity of citizens, the costs of government rise beyond the point where it is politically expedient to cover them by direct tax levies.  (Leonard Read Quotes) Under both the welfare state and communism, the responsibility for the welfare, security, and prosperity of the people is presumed to rest with the central government.  (Leonard Read Quotes) What, actually, is the difference between communism and fascism? Both are forms of statism, authoritarianism. The only difference between Stalin’s communism and Mussolini’s fascism is an insignificant detail in organizational structure  (Leonard Read Quotes) There could be no greater error than to conclude that statism caused prosperity  (Leonard Read Quotes) In market terms, one is entitled to what others will offer in willing exchange. That is all!  (Leonard Read Quotes) If we remove the hope of profit as a means to alleviate misfortune - poverty, illness, misery, disaster - we shall increase our misfortunes and make them permanent  (Leonard Read Quotes) Socialistic practices are now so ingrained in our thinking, so customary, so much a part of our mores, that we take them for granted  (Leonard Read Quotes) There is no greater dishonesty than man effecting his own private gains at the expense of others  (Leonard Read Quotes) True, the free market ignores the poor precisely as it does not recognize the wealthy - it is ‘no respecter of persons’  (Leonard Read Quotes) The system of plunder derives much of its support from individuals who do not subscribe to socialism but who say, ‘We’re paying for it, so we might as well get our share’  (Leonard Read Quotes) There is no moral distinction between the act of a pickpocket and the progressive income tax  (Leonard Read Quotes) Socialism takes and redistributes wealth, but it is utterly incapable of creating wealth  (Leonard Read Quotes) The advancement of freedom is not a matter of who wields political power over creative actions; rather, it depends upon the disassembling of such power  (Leonard Read Quotes) Were it necessary to bring a majority into a comprehension of the libertarian philosophy, the cause of liberty would be utterly hopeless. Every significant movement in history has been led by one or just a few individuals with a small minority of energetic supporters  (Leonard Read Quotes)
