Ludwig von Mises

Ludwig von Mises

Bill Bryson, A Short History of Nearly Everything

William F. Buckley Jr.

“I am a libertarian with a small 'l' and a Republican with a capital 'R'. And I am a Republican with a capital 'R' on grounds of expediency, not on principle.”
Milton Friedman

Carl Sagan
“Skeptical scrutiny is the means, in both science and religion, by which deep thoughts can be winnowed from deep nonsense.”
Carl Sagan
