Since material goods are produced by the mind and effort of individual men, and are needed to sustain their lives, if the producer does not own the result of his effort, he does not own his life. To deny property rights means to turn men into property owned by the state. Whoever claims the “right” […]
Mao Zedong was, by all assessments, not the nicest fellow. In 1964, he published “Quotations from Chairman Mao,” which came to be known to all and sundry as “Mao’s Little Red Book.”

The results have been a terrifying failure — terrifying, that is, if one’s motive is men’s welfare.
