"We must make the building of a free society once more an intellectual adventure, a deed of courage." #QotD


"We must make the building of a free society once more an intellectual adventure, a deed of courage. What we lack is a liberal Utopia, ... a truly liberal radicalism. ... The main lesson which the true liberal must learn from the success of the socialists [and fellow travellers] is that it was their courage to be Utopian ... which is daily making possible what only recently seemed utterly remote."
        ~ Friedrich Hayek, from his Studies in Philosophy, Politics and Economics.
