If younger people see older people who haven't planned ahead and have to rely on charity, the young will be more likely to provide for the future. Today when someone plans poorly, the only consequence people see is a demand for more government.
Harry Browne
I'm sorry that I can't snap my fingers and undo 50 years of bad American foreign policy.
Harry Browne
It has long been apparent that many people in the media don't believe you're competent to make your own decisions.
Harry Browne
Libertarians understand a very simple fact of life: Government doesn't work. It can't deliver the mail on time, it doesn't keep our cities safe, it doesn't educate our children properly.
Harry Browne
Everything you want in life has a price connected to it. There's a price to pay if you want to make things better, a price to pay just for leaving things as they are, a price for everything.
Harry Browne
Whatever the price, identify it now. What will you have to go through to get where you want to be? There is a price you can pay to be free of the situation once and for all. It may be a fantastic price or a tiny one - but there is a price.
Harry Browne
But, actually, it is only Americans who say that our freedoms and prosperity are the reason foreigners hate us. If you ask the foreigners, they make it clear that it's America's bullying foreign policy they detest.
Harry Browne
Whenever I say that America has become an empire, someone is sure to say I'm being ridiculous.
Harry Browne
I found that I was getting a warm reception for my message of freeing you from the income tax, releasing you from Social Security, ending the insane war on drugs, restoring gun rights, and reducing the federal government to just its constitutional functions.
Harry Browne
It is well known that in war, the first casualty is truth - that during any war truth is forsaken for propaganda.
Harry Browne
Voluntary association produces the free market - where each person can choose among a multitude of possibilities.
Harry Browne
Forcing people to be generous isn't humanitarian, effective, compassionate or moral. Only acts that are truly voluntary for all concerned can be truly compassionate.
Harry Browne
Everything we know about human nature and about government tells us that individuals using their own money will achieve far more good for themselves and far more for others than politicians spending money they didn't have to work to earn.
Harry Browne
Left-wing politicians take away your liberty in the name of children and of fighting poverty, while right-wing politicians do it in the name of family values and fighting drugs. Either way, government gets bigger and you become less free.
Harry Browne
You can't give the government the power to do good without also giving it the power to do bad - in fact, to do anything it wants.
Harry Browne
The Constitution isn't written in Chinese, Swahili or Sanskrit. It's in plain English.
Harry Browne
Contrary to all the blather we here about the unique goodness of the American people or our religious heritage or anything else, the one thing that set this country apart from all others was the Bill of Rights.
Harry Browne
Everyone will experience the consequences of his own acts. If his act are right, he'll get good consequences; if they're not, he'll suffer for it.
Harry Browne
A Libertarian society of unfettered individualism spreads its benefits to virtually everyone - not just those who have the resources to seize political power.
Harry Browne
The Bill of Rights isn't some legalistic fine print. It was written to make our lives freer, more prosperous, and happier. By forsaking it, America has become no better than any other country in the world.
Harry Browne
What we really need is compassion of the mind - compassion for others that is directed intelligently and produces truly compassionate results.
Harry Browne
A great burden was lifted from my shoulders the day I realized that no one owes me anything.
Harry Browne
Only free people have an incentive to be virtuous. Only people who bear the consequences of their own acts will care about those consequences and try to learn from their mistakes.
Harry Browne
The important thing is to concentrate upon what you can do - by yourself, upon your own initiative.
Harry Browne
