“I do not believe that the solution to our problem is simply to elect the right people. The important thing is to establish a political climate of opinion which will make it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing. Unless it is politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing, the right people will not do the right thing either, or if they try, they will shortly be out of office.”
― Milton Friedman

“Human beings are born with different capacities. If they are free, they are not equal. And if they are equal, they are not free.”

MSNBC political analyst Elise Jordan:
"And I think it's unfortunate that we are designing — that we are designing public policy in a way that, you know, comes down to how you voted in an election,”
I think it’s unfortunate that we live in a democratic Republic where “those people” can vote.

There, fixed that for her.
