Aim for Liberty

written by Mathew Rensberry on 2023-08-15

"A society that aims for equality before liberty will end up with neither equality nor liberty; and a society that aims first for liberty will not end up with equality, but it will end up with a closer approach to equality than any other system. ...You can only aim at equality by giving some people a right to take from others."

  • Milton Friedman
