Economic control is the control of the means for all our ends. And whoever has control of the means must also determine which ends are to be served.
Under the Rule of Law the individual is free to pursue his personal ends and desires, certain that the powers of government will not be used deliberately to frustrate his efforts.

I want good people to come here from all over the world, but I want them to do so legally.

We don’t use the term “working class” here because it’s a taboo term. You’re supposed to say “middle class,” because it helps diminish the understanding that there’s a class war going on.
I would like right now to address my colleagues in the regions, to ask them to not allow, under any circumstances, for flea markets and the like to appear at these stadiums, as appeared in other sport-related buildings in Moscow during the middle of the 1990s.
A reporter’s ability to keep the bond of confidentiality often enables him to learn the hidden or secret aspects of government.
As a marketing society, the US is to an unusual degree based on propaganda. The public relations industry, which is a huge industry, is a US-invented industry which spends billions of dollars on what they call ‘controlling the public mind’.
