Thought for the Day

Is it greedy to want to keep the money you've earned -- to spend it on your own children, to secure your own future and retirement so you won't be a burden on others, to buy a home of your own, to provide your family with the things that make life more enjoyable?

Or is it greedy to want something for nothing -- to want the government to confiscate money from those who have earned it and give it to you or to your pet social project?

Greed is wanting the government to force other people to conform to your desires, to outlaw your competitors, to remake the world in your image because you think you know more than everyone else.

- Harry Browne
