Prosperity or egalitarianism — you have to choose. I favor freedom — you never achieve real equality anyway, you simply sacrifice prosperity for an illusion.
— Marios Vargas Llosa
It’s a huge thing when people realize across the culture that paper money is paper. And that there’s no fixed value — it’s all political. That all value is set by a political authority, basically.
— John Currin
Start buying gold now, regardless of the price. By acting now, you will not have to react when it’s too late. Too late will be when the majority of the public finally figures out what is happening to paper money and frantically tries to get aboard. Remember, if you’re one of the ones holding paper in the end, you will have given away your products and services for nothing.
— Robert Ringer
We are in a world of irredeemable paper money — a state of affairs unprecedented in history.
— John Exter
Neither a state nor a bank ever have had unrestricted power of issuing paper money without abusing that power.
— David Ricardo
You must understand. The leading Bolsheviks who took over Russia were not Russians. They hated Russians. They hated Christians. Driven by ethnic hatred they tortured and slaughtered millions of Russians without a shred of human remorse. The October Revolution was not what you call in America the ‘Russian Revolution.’ It was an invasion and conquest over the Russian people. More of my countrymen suffered horrific crimes at their bloodstained hands than any people or nation ever suffered in the entirety of human history. It cannot be overstated. Bolshevism was the greatest human slaughter of all time. The fact that most of the world is ignorant of this reality is proof that the global media itself is in the hands of the perpetrators.
— Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Societies are far gone in depravity when toleration is considered good in itself, without regard to the thing tolerated.

“Let's see socialism for what it is. Not in the abstract, but in reality. Socialism is:
In other words, socialism is a protection racket and a long con and a heartless system of elite control, posing as the greatest good.
It is just another form of top-down tyranny — as old as the hills.”
— Jon Rappoport
“[A] deep-rooted culture of incompetence and corruption has made it virtually impossible for government to function fairly and efficiently. And because most government employees are shielded by layers of protection, they couldn’t care less. Never before in the history of this nation has there been a greater divide between a self-serving federal leviathan and millions of Americans … ‘Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem,’ Ronald Reagan reminded us during his inaugural address in 1981. Nothing’s changed since then, with one exception: It’s gotten far worse.”
