Mark Twain vs. The State

April 21, 2010 – Comments (18)

Three articles I came across today show the interesting divide between libertarians and statists.  I would classify a statist as anyone who believes that the State* rules with consent, justice, and wisdom.  I would classify a libertarian as anyone that laughed at that previous sentence.  [more]
