  1. Iowa says:

    "Gentlemen, the time is coming when there will be two great classes, Socialists, and Anarchists. The Anarchists want the government to be nothing, and the Socialists want government to be everything. There can be no greater contrast. Well, the time will come when there will be only these two great parties, the Anarchists representing the laissez faire doctrine and the Socialists representing the extreme view on the other side, and when that time comes I am an Anarchist."– William Graham Sumner(1840-1910)Source: quoted in Mark Thornton, The Economics of Prohibition (University of Utah Press, 1991), p. 17"Once the government becomes the supplier of people\’s needs,there is no limit to the needs that will be claimed as a basic right."– Lawrence AusterPolitical commentator" … I suggest that the more the state intervenes in such situations, the more \’necessary\’ (on this view) it becomes, because positive altruism and voluntary cooperative behaviour atrophy in the presence of the state and grow in its absence. Thus, again, the state exacerbates the conditions which are supposed to make it necessary. We might say that the state is like an addictive drug: the more of it we have, the more we \’need\’ it and the more we come to \’depend\’ on it."– Michael TaylorSource: The Possibility of Cooperation (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1987), p. 168
