perspective is everything
It took me like 16 tries to figure out what I was looking at.
The biggest challenge after success is shutting up about it.

A science of economics must be developed before a science of politics can be logically formulated. Essentially, economics is the science of determining whether the interests of human beings are harmonious or antagonistic. This must be known before a science of politics can be formulated to determine the proper functions of government.
Immediately following the development of a science of economics, and at the very beginning of the formulation of a science of politics, this all-important question must be answered: What is law? What ought it to be? What is its scope; its limits? Logically, at what point do the just powers of the legislator stop?
I do not hesitate to answer: Law is the common force organized to act as an obstacle to injustice. In short, law is justice
Frederic Bastiat, The Law
I snagged about five copies of The Law while I was at Freedom Fest and I’m thumbing through one again. I don’t know if there will ever be a more articulate, eloquent and concise advocate for liberty.(via antigovernmentextremist)
