This Week’s Quote: “The people on the ground today, protesting in Ferguson, have legitimate grievances that long predated Michael Brown’s death. But…Threatening lives and property of innocent third parties creates enemies out of would-be friends and supporters, while plays into the hands of those who value the protestors as political tools, dependable votes, and nothing more.” —Christopher Westley

This Week’s Quote: “Those words, ‘temperate and moderate,’ are words either of political cowardice, or of cunning, or seduction. A thing, moderately good is not so good as it ought to be. Moderation in temper, is always a virtue; but moderation in principle, is a species of vice.” —Thomas Paine

Almost all the studies–perhaps all the studies–suggested that the results of regulation had been bad, that the prices were higher, that the product was worse adapted to the needs of consumers, than it otherwise would have been…I can’t remember one that’s good…There were so many studies, and the result was quite universal: The effects were bad.” —Ronald Coase

This Week’s Quote: “Feminism has betrayed its roots and deteriorated into spurious artificial engineering. Rather than campaigning to help women, feminists today are more likely to be picking fights on Twitter, or dressing up petty grievances as proof of rampant ‘sexism’…If I ever was a feminist, I can’t be now…so ashamed and depressed am I by a once-laudable movement…I think any sensible woman will join me in feeling saddened by how irrelevant and niche modern feminism has become.” —Angela Epstein

30:15 – Idiot Extraordinaire: Mike Dawson http://mikedawwwson.tumblr.com/post/91854168921/santrevl-hound-actual-armedplatypus

This Week’s Quote: “Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing government, and form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable, a most sacred right—a right which we hope and believe is to liberate the world. Nor is this right confined to cases in which the whole people of an existing government may choose to exercise it. Any portion of such people that can may revolutionize and make their own of so much of the territory as they inhabit. More than this, a majority of any portion of such people may revolutionize, putting down a minority, intermingled with or near about them, who may oppose this movement.” —Abraham Lincoln
