G.K. Chesterton
“There are no uninteresting things, only uninterested people.”
G.K. Chesterton

G.K. Chesterton
“The word "good" has many meanings. For example, if a man were to shoot his grandmother at a range of five hundred yards, I should call him a good shot, but not necessarily a good man.”
G.K. Chesterton

Henry Hazlitt
“When the government makes loans or subsidies to business, what it does is to tax successful private business in order to support unsuccessful private business.”
Henry Hazlitt

James C. Scott
“Designed or planned social order is necessarily schematic; it always ignores essential features of any real, functioning social order. This truth is best illustrated in a work-to-rule strike, which turns on the fact that any production process depends on a host of informal practices and improvisations that could never be codified. By merely following the rules meticiously, the workforce can virtually halt production. In the same fashion, the simplified rules animating plans for, say, a city, a village or a collective farm were inadequate as a set of instructions for creating a functional social order, The formal scheme was parasitic on informal processes that, alone, it could not create or maintain.”
James C. Scott, Seeing Like a State: How Certain Schemes to Improve the Human Condition Have Failed
