  "Once the principle is admitted that it is the duty of the government to protect the individual against his own foolishness, no serious objections can be advanced against further encroachments.   Why not prevent him from reading bad books and bad plays, from looking at bad paintings and statues and from hearing bad music?   The mischief done by bad ideologies, surely, is more pernicious both for the individual and for the whole society, than that done by narcotic drugs." --- Ludwig von Mises (quoted in Stossel 2004 _Give Me a Break_ pp268-269)

  "All men were born equally free and independent, having certain natural and inherent and unalienable rights, among which are the enjoying and defending life and liberty, and acquiring, possessing,and protecting property; of which rights they cannot be deprived but by in-justice, except they first forfeit them by committing crimes against the public... how can a man be sais to be free and independent, enjoying and defending life and liberty and protecting property, when he has not a voice allowed him in the choice of the most important oficers in the legislature, which can make laws to bind him and appoint judges to try him in all cases as well of life and liberty as of property?" --- "return" of the town Dorchester on the proposed Massachusetts state constitution of 1778 (quoted at Thomas G. West 1997, 2000 _Vindicating the Founders: Race, Sex, "Class", and Justice in the Origins of America_ pg118; citing Oscar Handlin & Mary Flug Handlin 1966 _The Popular Sources of Political Authority: Documents on the Massachusetts Constitution of 1780_ pp487, 254, 520)

  "What is far more common is to find poverty-stricken countries that are among the most corrupt in the world -- for example, Nigeria, Haiti, Bangladesh, and many others.   It is not just that the political leaders are corrupt.   The level of mutual trust among the people at large has been found to be far lower in such countries than in more afluent nations.   Where poor countries contain entrepreneurial minorities who are capable of creating wealth, those minorities are often resented and restricted by discriminatory laws and policies.   In some cases, such wealth-producing minorities have been forced out of the country by hostility and outright violence, or even officially expelled, as Indians and Pakistanis were expelled from Uganda in the 1970s -- after which the Ugandan economy collapsed." --- Thomas Sowell 2008 _Economic Facts & Fallacies_ pg214 (citing Wlliam Easterly 2006 _The White Man's Burden: Why the West's Efforts to Aid the Rest Have Done So Much Ill and So Little Good_ pp79-80)
