— Some Libertarian Quotes

Some quotes that Libertarians must get to know and study. 


“We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.”

— Abraham Lincoln


“When it is established that government by right can take wealth from some and give it to others. When a society establishes criminals-by-right and looters-by-law, men will use force to seize the wealth of disarmed victims.  Such looters believe it safe to rob defenseless men, once they have passed a law to disarm them.  But their loot becomes the magnet for other looters, who get it from them as they got it.  Then the race goes, not to the ablest at production, but to those most ruthless at brutality.  When force is the standard, the murderer wins over the pickpocket.”

— Ayn Rand


“Government is the great fiction through which everybody endeavors to live at the expense of everybody else.”

— Frederic Bastiat


“It is a besetting vice of democracies to substitute public opinion for law. This is the usual form in which masses of men exhibit their tyranny.”

— James Fenimore Cooper

— Edmund Burke

— Vladimir Lenin

“I am not a friend to a very energetic government. It is always oppressive.”

— Thomas Jefferson 


“Those who will not reason, are bigots, those who cannot, are fools, and those who dare not, are slaves.”

— Lord Byron


“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.”

— Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe


“Now, legal plunder can be committed in an infinite number of ways. Thus we have an infinite number of plans for organizing it: tariffs, protection, benefits, subsidies, encouragements, progressive taxation, public schools, guaranteed jobs, guaranteed profits, minimum wages, a right to relief, a right to the tools of labor, free credit, and so on, and so on. All these plans as a whole—with their common aim of legal plunder—constitute socialism.”

— Frederic Bastiat


“Collecting more taxes than is absolutely necessary is legalized robbery.”

— President Calvin Coolidge


“How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don’t think.”

— Adolf Hitler


“Every actual State is corrupt. Good men must not obey the laws too well.”

— Ralph Waldo Emerson


“The law is justice—simple and clear, precise and bounded. Every eye can see it, and every mind can grasp it; for justice is measurable, immutable, and unchangeable. Justice is neither more than this nor less than this. If you exceed this proper limit—if you attempt to make the law religious, fraternal, equalizing, philanthropic, industrial, literary, or artistic—you will then be lost in an uncharted territory, in vagueness and uncertainty, in a forced utopia or, even worse, in a multitude of utopias, each striving to seize the law and impose it upon you. This is true because fraternity and philanthropy, unlike justice, do not have precise limits. Once started, where will you stop? And where will the law stop itself?”

— Frederic Bastiat


“It would be thought a hard government that should tax its people one tenth part.”

— Benjamin Franklin


“One thing is clear: The Founding Fathers never intended a nation where citizens would pay nearly half of everything they earn to the government.”

— Ron Paul


“I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.”

— Thomas Jefferson


“The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.”

  — Jeff Cooper, Art of the Rifle


“When government goes beyond its true purpose of protecting property to violating it, then everyone will want to participate in making the law, either to protect himself against plunder or to use it for plunder.  If the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime.  Then abolish this law without delay, for it is not only an evil itself, but also is a fertile source for further evils because it invites reprisals.  If such a law – which may be an isolated case – is not abolished immediately, it will spread, multiply, and develop into a system.”

— Frederic Bastiat
