Harry Browne (1933-2006)

Would you be willing to die to remove Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq? If the answer is no, then anything you have to say about the world being a better place now – about collateral damage – about the glory of soldiers sacrificing their lives for their country – is meaningless. You’re not willing to pay the price. You’re like so many people who believe various government programs are wonderful – provided someone else pays for them.
