Quotation of the Day…

in Government Intervention, Philosophy of Freedom

… is from page 40 of the 1981 Liberty Fund edition of Felix Morley‘s 1959 volume, Freedom and Federalism:

Morally speaking, it is reactionary rather than progressive whenever the state expands its authority at the expense of society. Government handouts, subsidies and interventions of every kind, no matter how dressed up with a specious humanitarianism, are essentially coercive measures by the state, encroaching more on more on the voluntary action of society.

DBx: Pictured here is Felix Morley (1894-1982).
