Heidi’s Recent Updates

Capitalism and Freedom by Milton Friedman
“Fundamentally, there are only two ways of co-ordinating the economic activities of millions. One is central direction involving the use of coercion - the technique of the army and of the modern totalitarian state. The other is voluntary co-operation of individuals - the technique of the market place.”
Milton Friedman
Capitalism and Freedom by Milton Friedman
“The role of government just considered is to do something that the market cannot do for itself, namely, to determine, arbitrate, and enforce the rules of the game.”
Milton Friedman
Capitalism and Freedom by Milton Friedman
“The power to do good is also the power to do harm; those who control the power today may not tomorrow; and, more important, what one man regards as good, another may regard as harm.”

Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Incredible and insightful story. It's an honest perception of the clash of Western and Islamic principals and immigration/values. Ayaan is fearless and an admirable figure of reason, equality, freedom of speech, and honesty.

“It’s appropriate and praiseworthy to associate with people whose lives would be improved if they saw your life improve.”
Jordan B. Peterson, 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos

Thomas Sowell
“The vision of the anointed is one in which ills as poverty, irresponsible sex, and crime derive primarily from ‘society,’ rather than from individual choices and behavior. To believe in personal responsibility would be to destroy the whole special role of the anointed, whose vision casts them in the role of rescuers of people treated unfairly by ‘society.”
Thomas Sowell, The Vision of the Anointed: Self-Congratulation as a Basis for Social Policy

Thomas Sowell
“Evidence is fact that discriminates between one theory and another. Facts do not „speak for themselves.” they speak for or against competing theories. Theories can be devastated by facts but they can never be proven correct by facts.
What empirical verification can do is to reveal which of the competing theories currently being considered is more consistent with that which is known factually. Some other theory may come along tomorrow that is still more consistent with the facts, or explains those facts with fewer, clearer, or more manageable assumptions.”
