Karl Hess
1923 - 1994

Anarchist libertarian writer, co-founder (with Murray Rothbard) of the Libertarian Alliance (1969), inspiration for the founding of the Libertarian Party in the U.S. and editor emeritus of its newsletter, speechwriter for Senator Barry Goldwater and President Richard Nixon


Poor people stop being poor when they lose habits, when they stop thinking poor and start creating wealth. This doesn't mean becoming rich; it just means producing wealth, working. ... The concerns of the poor have never been addressed by anyone. The liberals have simply said they were addressing them but kept people poor by putting them on welfare.

May. 01, 1982 - from an interview published in Reason Magazine
