  Who Said It and When?
"Here I encounter the most popular fallacy of our times. It is not considered sufficient that the law should be just; it must also be philanthropic. Nor is it sufficient that the law should guarantee to every citizen the free and inoffensive use of his faculties for physical, intellectual, and moral self-improvement. Instead, it is demanded that the law should directly extend welfare, education and morality throughout the nation.

"This is the seductive lure of socialism. And I repeat again: These two uses of the law are in direct contradiction to each other. We must choose between them. A citizen cannot at the same time be free and not free. "

I love the blog that you have. I was wondering if you would link my blog to yours and in return I would do the same for your blog. If you want to, my site name is American Legends and the URL is:

www.americanlegends.info

If you want to do this just go to my blog and in one of the comments just write your blog name and the URL and I will add it to my site.

Thanks,
David
 
Good job James. Socialism and freedom don't mix. One gives up their freedom and independence to the nanny government when they adopt socialism as their way of life.
 
btw. Who is the author of that quote?
 
Frederic Bastiat
 
Good job with the Google there, Jay.
 
That plus an education.

Double major in history and literature.

Have you actually read Bastiat, or do you just pick out quotes you find on the internet?
 
All that alleged education and so little wisdom. Kind of a waste of money. Or are those degrees about as real as your "wounds"?
