„Freedom and community are important.“

—  Ричард Мэттью Столлман, 2000s, Context: Freedom and community are important. Gratis software is not worth such an effort, because price is usually not an ethical issue. Paying isn’t wrong, and being paid isn’t wrong. Trampling other people’s freedom and community is wrong, so the free software movement aims to put an end to it, at least in the area of software.

„Within a militarist community there is no freedom; there are only obedience and discipline.“

—  Ludwig von Mises, book Omnipotent Government
Context: The characteristic feature of militarism is not the fact that a nation has a powerful army or navy. It is the paramount role assigned to the army within the political structure. Even in peacetime the army is supreme; it is the predominant factor in political life. The subjects must obey the government as soldiers must obey their superiors. Within a militarist community there is no freedom; there are only obedience and discipline. Omnipotent Government: The Rise of the Total State and Total War (1944)
