Freedom is a way of overcoming our own fallibility

“Freedom is a way of overcoming our own fallibility.”  Property, Freedom, and the Essential Job of Government.

“If there were omniscient men, if we could know all the affects the attainment of our present wishes but also our future wants and desires, there would be little case for liberty.” F.A. Hayek, Nobel Lecture, 1974

“The recognition of the insuperable limits to his knowledge ought indeed to teach the student of society a lesson of humility which should guard him against becoming an accomplice in men’s fatal striving to control society — a striving which makes him not only a tyrant over his fellows, but which may well make him the destroyer of a civilization which no brain has designed but which has grown from the free efforts of millions of individuals.” F.A. Hayek, Nobel Lecture, 1974
