Quote of the Day

With its belief in human freedom, both economic and individual, I would argue that America was the most radical of nations. While both the French and Russian Revolutions were more radical in their destruction of the existing social order, I would contend that in implementing statist, totalitarian systems, both the French and Russian regimes became regressive, whereas the American constitutional system, by limiting the power of the state over the individual with a written constitution, and trusting individuals and societies to evolve without coercion, was the more radical.
