Quotational Therapy: Part 124 -- Milton Friedman Day.

How To Advance Freedom-

Today is Milton Friedman Day.

Late in his life, Friedman offered some advice for those wishing to advance freedom. Here was his answer:

I think that the best thing that people can do who want to promote the free market is to talk about the free market, to think about the free market, to write about the free market and to get into arguments.

Good ideas ultimately win in the public square. We just have to be willing to stand up for them.

Incidentally, from the same interview:

I always told my students that if they went to Washington, they shouldn't stay there more than two years or they'll get ruined.

I concur. When I have spent any significant time in Washington, DC, I've constantly wanted to leave. And I've constantly pondered how much money I could make selling a t-shirt like this around town (and around the country):

Also:

Is this yet another million dollar idea left unfulfilled?

Probably not. But how awesome would it be to see tourists buying up these shirts on The Mall? Or candidates and their staff members wearing these shirts on the campaign trail?

Sir Ernest Benn.

The right quote can be therapeutic, so tune in to WILLisms.com for quotational therapy on Monday and Friday.

I have never been there. BUT when you see what happens to politicians once they are there??? Well, it is frightening! The political climate in DC seems is be dictated by what I call "The Clinton Hangover"... What is reeeeeeeally pathetic is the idea of another Clinton era????!!!! Yikes!
