Ludwig von Mises: "This, then, is freedom in the external life of manthat he is independent of the arbitrary power of his fellows. Such freedom is no natural right. It did not exist under primitive conditions. It arose in the process of social development and its final completion is the work of mature Capitalism." - Socialism
