Quote of the Day: The Real Forgotten Man

The existence of government power sets man against man. It sets those who would achieve and create against those who would steal through elections and laws and taxes. In the end, the burden of government falls on that Forgotten Man, that real Forgotten Man. It is he who has worked and saved and done the right things to take care of himself and his family. Yet now he is told he must pay again for others who have not worked and saved as he.
This incisive excerpt is from investment analyst Chris Mayer in a book review of American educator and proto-libertarian William Graham Sumner’s It Is Not Wicked to Be Rich at the Laissez Faire Books
