  "Between 20M and 35M Americans belonged to a 'mutual aid society' in 1930, more than any other kind of organization besides churches. Whom did these 'societies' cater to? Acording to one contemporary source: '...the middle-class work-man, the salaried clerk, the farmer, the artisan, the country merchant, and the laborer [seeking to] insure their helpless broods against abject poverty. Rich men insure in the big companies to create an estate; poor men in fraternal orders to create bread and meat. It is an insurance against want, the poor-house, charity, and degradation." --- Yaron Brook & Don Watkins 2012 _Free Market Revolution: How Ayn Rand's Ideas Can End Big Government_ pg181 (citing David T. Beito 2003 _From Mutual Aid to the Illfare State: Fraternal Societies and "Social Services" 1890-1967_ pp12-14, 204, 219)

  "This shows clearly how good the Celts were...at organizing their industry and suggests that at the height of the La Tene period their settlements must have hummed with economic activity. Behind the muri gallici could be heard not only the yelling of savage warrior-hosts but also the hammering of smiths, the clattering of looms and the squeaking of grind-stones. Out of the turbulence of the 5th century BCE had emerged a society in which warlike features mingled with highly capitalist ones." --- Gerhard Herm 1975, 1976 _The Celts_ pp136-137

Proposed Bills 2018
  "By 1846 Britain had become such a firm convert to this creed [free trade] that Parliament repealed the protectionist Corn Laws. Legislation that had prohibited the export of advanced technology and the emigration of skilled craftsmen was also lifted. The era of [somewhat] free trade had begun." --- Max Boot 2006 _War Made New: Technology, Warfare, and the Course of History 1500 to Today_ pg113 (citing J.M. Roberts 1995 _The Penguin History of the World_ pg685; David S. Landes 1988, 2003 _The Unbound Prometheus: Technological Change and Industrial Development in Western Europe from 1750 to the Present_ pg124; Paul Kennedy 1989 _The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers: Economic Change and Military Conflict from 1500 to 2000_ pp148-149)

Except that computer people use 2 as a base raised to multiples of powers of 10, instead of 10 raised to multiples of powers of 3 because powers of 2 are handier for them, but they also want to stay somewhat close to the values of 10 most folks are used to.

  "There is a manifest, marked distinction, which ill men with ill designs, or weak men in-capable of any design, will constantly be confounding -- that is, a marked distinction between change and reformation.   The former alters the substance of the objects themselves, and gets rid of all their essential good as well as of all the accidental evil annexed to them.   Change is novelty; and whether it is to operate any one of the effects of reformation at all, or whether it may not contradict the very principle upon which reformation is desired, cannot be known before-hand.   Reform isnot change in substance or in the primary modification of the object, but a direct application of a remedy to the grievance complained of.   So far as that is removed, all is sure.   It stops there; and if it fails, the substance which underwent the operation, at the very worst, is but where it was...   By this un-principled facility of changing the state is often, and as much, and in as many ways, as thereare floating fancies or fashions, the whole chain of continuity of the commonwealth would be broken.   No one generation could link with the other.   Men would become little better than the flies of a summer." --- Edmund Burke (quoted in Mark Reed Levin 2017 _ReDiscovering Americanism: And the Tyranny of Regressivism_ pp25-26; citing Peter James Stanlis 1991, 1997 _Edmund Burke: The Enlightenment and Revolution_ pg213; citing Edmund Burke 1904 _Works_ vol5 pg186)
