Ludwig von Mises Quote: “The bureaucrat is not free to aim at improvement. He is bound to obey rules and regulations established by a superior body. He has no right to embark upon innovations if his superiors do not approve of them. His duty and his virtue is to be obedient.”

Ludwig von Mises Quote: “Continued inflation inevitably leads to catastrophe.”
Ludwig von Mises Quote: “This is the difference between slavery and freedom. The slave must do what his superior orders him to do, but the free citizen-and this is what freedom means-is in a position to choose his own way of life.”
Ludwig von Mises Quote: “Since nobody is in a position to substitute his own value judgments for those of the acting individual, it is vain to pass judgment on other people’s aims and volitions. No man is qualified to declare what would make another man happier or less discontented.”
Ludwig von Mises Quote: “Continued adherence to a policy of compulsory education is utterly incompatible with efforts to establish lasting peace.”
