Garet Garrett   Category:

The winds that blow our billions away return burdened with themes of scorn and dispraise.
Garet Garrett   Category:

There was endless controversy as to whether the acts of the New Deal did actually move recovery or retard it, and nothing final could ever come of that bitter debate because it is forever impossible to prove what might have happened in place of what did.
Garet Garrett   Category:

This is the problem for which revolutionary theory has yet to find the right solution, if there is one. The difficulty is that the economic interests of the two classes are antagonistic.
Garet Garrett   Category:

To the revolutionary mind the American vista must have been almost as incredible as Genghis Khan's first view of China - so rich, so soft, so unaware.
Garet Garrett   Category:

Well, where there is freedom doubt itself must be free.
Garet Garrett   Category:

You do not defend a world that is already lost.
