Society is composed of men, and every man is a FREE agent. Since man is free, he can choose; since he can choose, he can err; since he can err, he can suffer. I go further: He must err and he must suffer; for his starting point is ignorance, and in his ignorance he sees before him an infinite number of unknown roads, all of which save one lead to error.
I find this quote interesting. we all want the freedom to make our own choices but too many then expect others to step in and bail them out when those choices produce undesired consequences. If you havent read any of Bastait's works I recommend them. Even if you disagree it is interesting
