"What Liberals in both countries have forgotten is the philosophies of their political patron saints, Adam Smith and John Stuart Mill, who believed, respectively, in unfettered market forces and fettered government."

"Democracy means liberty much less than it means equality; democracy is infinitely more egalitarian than libertarian. Every victory for equality seemed to the man of 1900 a victory for liberty. He was not aware of the fact that it was first and foremost a victory for the state. From every victory for equality, each citizen could derive some advantages and personal satisfaction, but the real profit went only to the state... Totalitarian regimes are the most egalitarian of all: total equality in total slavery!"
