„What private property does is connect effort to reward,
creating an incentive for people to produce more.

people will trade their surpluses to each other for the things they lack.
Mutual exchange for mutual benefit makes the community richer.“

—  John Stossel American consumer reporter, investigative journalist, author and libertarian columnist 1947

—  Michael Franti American rapper 1966

Interview, live at Coachella http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YMwcXBePqE
Kontext: I've never really been into flags of any kind, cause flags can bring people together, but they always bring people together against other people, and I don't really consider myself to be a patriot in the sense that I say, 'okay, this is my nation,' I consider myself to be a child of this whole planet.
