The greatest danger to the State is independent intellectual criticism  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) You don’t need a treaty to have free trade  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) Never have the world’s moneys been so long cut off from their metallic roots  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) Rights might be universal but their enforcement must be local  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) While big-business leaders and firms can be highly productive, servants of consumers in a free market economy, they are also all too often, seekers after subsidies, contracts, privileges, or cartels furnished by big government. Often, business lobbyists and leaders are the sparkplugs for the statist, interventionist system.  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) Throughout history governments have been chronically short of revenue. The reason should be clear: unlike you and me, governments do not produce useful goods and services that they can sell on the market; governments, rather than producing and selling services, live parasitically off the market and off society  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) It doesn’t matter what the supply of money is  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) Pollution and overuse of resources stem directly from the failure of government to defend private property. If property rights were to be defended adequately, we would find that here, as in other areas of our economy and society, private enterprise and modern technology would come not as a curse to mankind but as its salvation  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) All of the services commonly thought to require the State-from the coining of money to police protection to the development of law in defense of the rights of person and property-can be and have been supplied far more efficiently and certainly more morally by private persons. The State is in no sense required by the nature of man; quite the contrary  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) Rights may be universal, but their enforcement must be local  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) Children are prepared for democracy by being led to discuss current events without first learning the systematic subjects (politics, economics, history) which are necessary in order to discuss them. The Mole effect is to substitute slogans and superficial opinion for considered individual thought. And the opinion is that of the lowest common denominator of the group  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) Libertarians regard the state as the Supreme, the eternal, the best organized aggressor against the persons and property of the mass of the public. All states everywhere, whether democratic, dictatorial, or monarchical, whether red, white, blue or brown  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) If a man has the right to self-ownership, to the control of his life, then in the real world he must also have the right to sustain his life by grappling with and transforming resources; he must be able to own the ground and the resources on which he stands and which he must use. In short, to sustain his human right  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) The costs of government are bound to be much higher than those of the free market. . .The State cannot calculate well and therefore cannot gauge its costs accurately  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) Monetary inflation not only raises prices and destroys the value of the currency unit; it also acts as a giant system of expropriation  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) Unlike every other person and institution in society, government obtains its revenue from coercion, from taxation  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) The natural tendency of government, once in charge of money, is to inflate and to destroy the value of the currency  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) All government operation is wasteful, inefficient, and serves the bureaucrat rather than the consumer  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) Positivism eliminates any kind of natural law principle - for example, that there are economic laws which can be transgressed only at your peril. With positivism, there is a tendency to leap into ad hoc economic theory  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) ...The very nature of interstate war puts innocent civilians into great jeopardy, especially with modern technology.  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) What...can the government do to help the poor? The only answer is the libertarian answer: Get out of the way.  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) Unlike every other person and institution in society, government obtains its revenue from coercion, from taxation.  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) The more these readjustments are delayed ... the longer the depression will have to last, and the longer complete recovery is postponed.  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) Soaking the rich would not only be profoundly immoral, it would drastically penalize the very virtues: thrift, business foresight, and investment, that have brought about our remarkable standard of living. It would truly be killing the goose that lays the golden eggs.  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) The State is, and always has been, the great single enemy of the human race, its liberty, happiness, and progress.  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) The natural tendency of the state is inflation. This statement will shock those accustomed to viewing the state as a committee of the whole nation ardently dispensing the general welfare, but I think it nonetheless true.  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) If you wish to know how libertarians regard the State and any of its acts, simply think of the State as a criminal band, and all of the libertarian attitudes will logically fall into place.  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) Early economic theory was rooted in the Italian, French, and Spanish traditions, which were subjectivist oriented. Then it shifted onto the terrible path by Smith and Ricardo and the British classical tradition, which is ‘objectivist’ - values are in inherent in production.  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) I see the liberty of the individual not only as a great moral good in itself (or, with Lord Acton, as the highest political good), but also as the necessary condition for the flowering of all the other goods that mankind cherishes: moral virtue, civilization, the arts and sciences, economic prosperity.  (Murray Rothbard Quotes) The natural tendency of government, once in charge of money, is to inflate and to destroy the value of the currency.  (Murray Rothbard Quotes)
