« All quotes from this author
 

There is surely no contradiction in saying that a certain section of the community may be quite competent to protect the persons and property of the rest, yet quite unfit to direct our opinions, or to superintend our private habits.

In a covenant...among proprietor and community tenants for the purpose of protecting their private property, no such thing as a right to free (unlimited) speech exists, not even to unlimited speech on oneís own tenant-property. One may say innumerable things and promote almost any idea under the sun, but naturally no one is permitted to advocate ideas contrary to the very covenant of preserving and protecting private property, such as democracy and communism. There can be no tolerance toward democrats and communists in a libertarian social order. They will have to be physically separated and removed from society.

 
Hans-Hermann Hoppe
 

The only proper, moral purpose of a government is to protect manís rights, which means: to protect him from physical violenceóto protect his right to his own life, to his own liberty, to his own property and to the pursuit of his own happiness. Without property rights, no other rights are possible.

 
Ayn Rand
 

The tolls for the maintenance of a high road, cannot with any safety be made the property of private persons.

A segregated school system produces children who, when they graduate, graduate with crippled minds. But this does not mean that a school is segregated because itís all black. A segregated school means a school that is controlled by people who have no real interest in it whatsoever. Let me explain what I mean. A segregated district or community is a community in which people live, but outsiders control the politics and the economy of that community. They never refer to the white section as a segregated community. Itís the all-Negro section thatís a segregated community. Why? The white man controls his own school, his own bank, his own economy, his own politics, his own everything, his own community; but he also controls yours. When youíre under someone elseís control, youíre segregated.
