Political Economy Quote of the Week for 20160711

“Why should you desire to take from any man or woman their own will and intelligence, their free choice, their own self-guidance, their inalienable rights over themselves; why should you desire to make of them mere tools and instruments for your own advantage and interest; why should you desire to compel them to serve and follow your opinions instead of their own; why should you deny in them the soul – that suffers so deeply from all constraint – and treat them as a sheet of blank paper upon which you may write your own will and desires, of whatever kind they may happen to be?” – Auberon Herbert, A Plea for Voluntaryism.
