"How often do you think babies think about money? The answer is never. They expect life to hand them everything. The baby, like the communist, loves to leech the life off the free man, then plots to destroy the host; but, alas, fails to realize that when the host dies the baby, too, well perish without his precious bottle of milk. Futile will be baby’s cries of “goo goo gah gah” in the end."
Murray Rothbard, On Why Babies Suck (1949)

"The United States is again being subjected to that “complex of fear and vaunting” (in the brilliant phrase of Garet Garrett’s) which drove us, and the Western world, into two other disastrous wars in our century. Once again, the American public is being subjected to a nearly unanimous barrage of war propaganda and war hysteria, so that only the most searching and rational can keep their heads. Once again, we find that there has emerged upon the scene an Enemy, a Bad Guy, with the same old Bad Guy characteristics that we have heard of before; a diabolic, monolithic Enemy, which, generations ago in some “sacred texts,” decided (for reasons that remain obscure) that it was “out to conquer the world."

Depends on the odds.
