"...the worship of the state."


"A new type of superstition has got hold of people's minds, the worship of the state. People demand the exercise of the methods of coercion and compulsion, of violence and threat. Woe to anybody who does not bend his knee to the fashionable idols."
          ~ Ludwig von Mises, from his book Omnipotent Government

  1. That's pretty good going. Old Ludwig Unbending the knee in 1944. I see he recognises that Coercion and violence and compulsion are demanded by the sheep. I don't know how you can stay in that country Peter. Over here in a semi military State I can almost say and do what I want.
