    Here are some great quotes from F. Hayek:

    to require certain sanitary arrangements, to provide an extensive
    system of social services is fully compatible with the preservation
    of competition."

    Quote Originally Posted by Hayek

    assure to all protection against severe deprivation in the form of an
    assured minimum income, or a floor below which nobody need to
    descend. To enter into such an insurance against extreme mis-
    fortune may well be in the interest of all; or it may be felt to be a
    clear moral duty of all to assist, within the organized community,
    those who cannot help themselves. So long as such a uniform
    minimum income is provided outside the market to all those who,
    for any reason, are unable to earn in the market an adequate maintenance, this need not lead to a restriction of freedom, or conflict
    with the Rule of Law."

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    It's pretty sad that you would have to be prompted to post sources for disembodied quotes. I'd have to read the context before commenting.

    "The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. To be your own man is hard business. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself." Rudyard Kipling - (1865-1936)

    Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.
