A Wonderful Source of Anti-Socialist Ammunition

I had not realized that there was a repository of Ludwig von Mises extensive quotations, but even better than just finding one, it is searchable. That may not turn your crank now, but go try out the The Quotable Mises. Just put in your favorite nemesis philosophy, and let the fun begin. One of my favorites:
What pushes the masses into the camp of socialism is, even more than the illusion that socialism will make them richer, the expectation that it will curb all those who are better than they themselves are. . . . There will no longer be any room left for innovators and reformers.
Pointed, filled with balanced truth, what more do you want? I am sure to be returning to this depot in the battles ahead.
