Quotation of the Day

Frederick Bastiat

“Socialists want “to play God,” Bastiat observed, anticipating all the future tyrants and despots of the world who would try to remake the world in their image, whether that image would be communism, fascism, the “glorious union,” or “global democracy.”  Bastiat also observed that socialists wanted forced conformity; rigid regimentation of the population through pervasive regulation; forced equality of wealth; and dictatorship.  As such, they were [and remain] the mortal enemies of liberty.” ― The Law, by Frédéric Bastiat, Copyright © 2007 by the Ludwig von Mises Institute, Auburn, Alabama (www.mises.org), Page VII.
