Michael Shermer
“Even unrelated members of a clan who exhibit such positive attributes trigger in our brains a moral pattern: (A) Og was nice to me, so (B) I should be nice to Og; and (C) if I help Og, (D) Og will return the favor. In The Mind of the Market I demonstrated that this effect can be seen between clans and tribes when they participated in mutually beneficial exchanges, also known as trade. Even in the modern world, opening trade borders between two countries tends to lower tensions and aggressions between them, and closing trade borders—imposing trade sanctions—increases the likelihood that two nations will fight. These are both good examples of moral patternicities that have worked for and against our species.3”

Jeffrey Tucker
“Freedom is threatened from two ends, the right and left. The idea of liberty really does represent a third way, a path lit by the hope in the kind of civilization that can be built not from the top down but from the bottom up, not through the force of power but by voluntary associations of regular people who aspire to live better lives.”
Jeffrey Tucker, Right-Wing Collectivism: The Other Threat to Liberty

Jeffrey Tucker
“The progress of the last 500 years shows us precisely what the good ideas are: social harmony, human rights, the aspiration of universal dignity, the conviction that we can work together in mutual advantage, the market economy as a means of peace and prosperity, and, above all else, the beauty and magnificence of the idea of liberty itself.”
Jeffrey Tucker, Right-Wing Collectivism: The Other Threat to Liberty

Yuval Noah Harari
“Thomas Jefferson no hizo al Estado responsable de la felicidad de sus ciudadanos. En cambio, solo buscó limitar el poder del Estado. La idea era reservar para los individuos una esfera privada de elección, libre de la supervisión estatal.”
Yuval Noah Harari, Homo Deus: Breve historia del mañana

Yuval Noah Harari
“lo largo de la historia, las religiones y las ideologías no sacralizaron la vida. Siempre sacralizaron algo situado por encima o más allá de la existencia terrenal y, en consecuencia, fueron muy tolerantes con la muerte.”
Yuval Noah Harari, Homo Deus: Breve historia del mañana
