Bonus Quotation of the Day…

… is from page 8 of my late Nobel-laureate colleague James M. Buchanan’s opening essay, by the same title, of his 2005 collection, Why I, Too, Am Not a Conservative: The Normative Vision of Classical Liberalism:

There is no half-way house here; other persons are to be treated as natural equals, deserving of equal respect and individually responsible for their actions, or they are to be treated as subordinate members of the species, akin to that accorded animals who are dependent.

DBx: The truth expressed here is unfashionable and politically incorrect (although just why this fact is so, I cannot figure out). But it is undeniable.
