George Reisman on goverment science (good rhetoric!)Submitted by atrickpay on Fri, 08/07/2009 - 13:04
"Any financial support the state may provide to science is by means of taxes collected at the point of a gun, from people who know that they will be imprisoned if they do not pay the taxes and injured or killed if they resist being imprisoned. This is a remarkable foundation for the progress of science, much like a purported construction of a laboratory by gorillas."
From his article Free-Market Science vs. Government Science.
Just wanted to share...I'll be using this if I'm ever talking to a statist who advocates government science!
