“The human spirit seeks full and free expression in every department of life: in the spoken and written word; in music, sculpture and architecture; in sport and play. And also in work.
Man’s work, when people are free, takes form as the market economy; and the free economy generates the material support the human spirit needs for its intellectual and aesthetic fulfillment.
Economic liberty makes for a broadly shared prosperity which provides the wealth a people need to build schools, churches and factories; hospitals and laboratories; theaters, concert halls, art galleries and museums; gardens, playing fields, and stadiums.
These cultural artifacts reflect the several facets of human nature striving for full and harmonious realization; they are the fruits of freedom. Only tend to the roots, and these miracles — and more — are possible.”
Edmund A. Opitz, from The Freeman, June 1988.
