“A claim for equality of material position can only be met by a government with totalitarian powers.” – Friedrich Hayek
This quote by F.A. Hayek is similar to another one that is commonly attributed to Thomas Jefferson but was actually said by President Gerald Ford during a speech to Congress.
“A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have.” – Gerald Ford
It’s important for members of the liberty movement to make sure to spread the message to the public that although it sounds good at first, giving the government more power always ends badly.
