Quote of the day

The green movement, in other words, is the red movement stripped of the veneer of reason and science and bent on the destruction of reason and science rather than take the trouble to learn what reason and science actually are. The green movement is the red movement no longer in its boisterous, arrogant youth, but in its demented old age. – George  Reisman who celebrates his 80th birthday today.

He also said:

Like the use of the word ‘concupiscence’ in an earlier age to describe sexual desire, the use of the word ‘pollution’ to describe essential aspects of the productive activities of an industrial society represents an attempt to defame an entirely proper human capacity by means of using an evil sounding name for it.

And:

The truth is that economic competition is the very opposite of competition in the animal kingdom. It is not a competition in the grabbing off of scarce nature-given supplies, as it is in the animal kingdom. Rather, it is a competition in the positive creation of new and additional wealth.

And:

Socialism must commence with an enormous act of theft. Those who seriously want to steal must be prepared to kill those whom they plan to rob.  

Hat tip – Not PC
