"A free society can only be sustained if the general public is aware
of the vital importance of the market and the terrible consequences of statism."
-- Quote from the preface by L. H. Rockwell, Jr.
"Man's condition on earth is that he must work
with the given natural conditions and improve them by human
action. It is a reflection on nature, not on the free market, that everyone
is "free to starve."
Economics demonstrates that individuals, entering into
mutual relations in a free market in a free society - and only in
such relations - can provide abundance for themselves and for
the entire society. [...]
The free market in the world of production may be termed
"free competition" or "free entry," meaning that in a free society
anyone is free to compete and produce in any field he chooses.
"Free competition" is the application of liberty to the sphere of
production: the freedom to buy, sell, and transform one's property
without violent interference by an external power."
