Quote of the Day

Liberty"What is the basic, the essential, the crucial principle that differentiates freedom from slavery? It is the principle of voluntary action versus physical coercion or compulsion...The issue is not slavery for a 'good' cause versus slavery for a 'bad' cause; the issue is not dictatorship by a 'good' gang versus dictatorship by a 'bad; gang. The issue is freedom versus dictatorship."

Ayn Rand -- Capitalism, the Unknown Ideal

[Thanks to Individ for reminding me this is Ayn Rand's 100th Birthday. I may reread Atlas Shrugged to commemorate it.]
