“If your concerned about the poor then you really should be for capitalism. Ludwig von Mises in
1927... ‘the only system that can create wealth for the masses is market capitalism.’” -[Guest]
TAKS epi. 682

“Why are you wealthier today than the King of England in 1263?... you have all sorts of things
that he never had including indoor plumbing… And so what caused that? Innovation…. What
drives innovation is reward for being successful…. If there’s an innovation, you know where it’s
coming from; it’s coming from a market capitalist system…. it rewards you for taking on the risk
of innovation. Innovation requires risk. You’re not innovative if you’re just doing what everybody
else was doing.” -[Guest] TAKS epi. 682

I believe not only because it makes sense but it makes sense of everything else. -CS Lewis

When everything becomes politics, nothing becomes any good, nothing becomes worth
anything.

The truth will out. -William Shakespeare

The truth has a voice. The truth has a vote. The truth will out.

If you can’t use the language you want to use, you can’t express the ideas in your head. And
that is the whole point.

Wise passiveness — you’ve got to let the person grow as they are. -Wordsworth

You start out just trying to control what you think is evil but then you realize that you—in order to
do that—​you​ must be the arbiter of good and evil. So everything becomes your opinion writ
large and you try to shut everybody down.

The world is not to be the arbiter of our values.
