This Week’s Quote: “Our trend in copyright law has been to enclose as much as we can; the consequence of this enclosure is a stifling of creativity and innovation. If the Internet teaches us anything, it is that great value comes from leaving core resources in a commons, where they’re free for people to build upon as they see fit.” —Lawrence Lessig

This Week’s Quote: “All loans, in the eyes of honest borrowers, must eventually he repaid. All credit is debt. Proposals for an increased volume of credit, therefore, are merely another name for proposals for an increased burden of debt. They would seem considerably less inviting if they were habitually referred to by the second name instead of by the first.” —Henry Hazlitt

This Week’s Quote: “The similarity of arguments against the abolition of slavery and arguments against the abolition of government (as we know it) should shake the faith of all Americans who still labor under the misconception that ours is a ‘government of the people, by the people, for the people.’ From where I stand, it looks distressingly like an institutional complex that rests on the same shaky intellectual foundations as slavery.” —Robert Higgs
