Today’s Quotes: Orwell & Kirzner

Thanks to Lawrence Reed for this one.

“The real division is not between conservatives and revolutionaries but between authoritarians and libertarians”
— George Orwell, author of 1984 and Animal Farm

And this one I saw on FB.

“The phenomenon of economic ignorance is so widespread, and its consequences so frightening, that the objective of reducing that ignorance becomes a goal invested with independent moral worth. But the economic education needed to reduce such ignorance must be based on austere, objective, scientific content—with no ideological or moral content of its own.”
— Israel Kirzner
