Well done, Mike! I just formatted your post for readability.

The source has been updated.  Tocqueville prefaces by saying:

"I seek to trace the novel features under which despotism may appear in the world.

The first thing that strikes the observation is an innumerable multitude of men all equal and alike, incessantly endeavoring to procure the petty and paltry pleasures with which they glut their lives."

Actually, the quote is from Calvin Coolidge in a speech commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence.

Hi, Jim.  I was under the impression you could pay with a credit card without setting up a Paypal account.  Look for a payment method for a credit card.

The Latin phrase "Malo periculosam libertatem quam quietum servitium" is in the letter from Jefferson to Madison, verbatim.  He was not directly quoting Count Palatine, but it was an idiom of which both were familiar. 

Editor, Liberty Quotes

Would you prefer the original Latin?

"Malo periculosam, libertatem quam quietam servitutem."

Jefferson and Madison were versed in Latin and Greek, often included famous idioms in their writing.  The phrase is in a letter from Jefferson to Madison on January 30, 1787.

Shall we put this to rest? We are happy to remake the meme in Latin for the purists. The English translation of the phrase will stand.

We were not able to confirm that the Saturday Review columnist Lawrence Dennis is the same as the pro-fascist author Lawrence Dennis (1893-1977).  I do not think they are the same person.  A link to the source article is provided.

Sorry, Robert.  We've got a bug in the system that often does not save responses if the page has been open for more than 15 minutes before sending.  So, long responses are usually the ones that get hit.  We are working on it.  Try copying your text before sending, then redo if it does not get saved.  You are not being censored, we value your comments greatly.  Cheers!

Editor, Liberty Quotes

Thank you, Mike.  Our site(s) have been banned for years in many places.  I check our domain trustworthiness regularly to make sure we haven't been added to any banned lists.  I can say that there has been a concerted effort over the years to censor sites and pages that promote 'liberty'  it is a trigger word for 'hate speech' because it offends the ruling class and their dependents.  Let's hope that the cause of Liberty does not entirely depend on this site. :-)  Mike if you wouldn't mind sending me an email, I'd like to get more details about the messages you've been getting when trying to connect to the site, maybe figure out how to get 'approved' again.  Cheers.

Editor, Liberty Quotes

Robert, RBESRQ is you.  Yes, you have been on this list for 10+ years.  Cheers!

'Dental caries' is tooth decay due to bacteria, cavities are the result.  The details are correct.

Editor, Liberty Quotes

Thanks, Frank.  You are right, the source is incorrect (even though it is declared as a reference in many other places).  The quote is actually from "Great Fortunes from Railroads", 1910, p.183.  The source has been updated.

Editor, Liberty Quotes

I hate it when that happens.  :-0  We're still making adjustments to the site's design.  If you have left open the page for more than 30 minutes, your session may have expired.  I have bumped the session time up to 90 minutes now.  For those long posts, copy the message before saving.  It happens to me on other sites, too.  Cheers.

The quotation is often attributed to Dr. Rogers with an incorrect date of 1931. The quotation is part of a longer 1984 sermon in a larger series titled "God’s Way to Health, Wealth and Wisdom" (CDA107); it also appears in Dr. Rogers' 1996 work "Ten Secrets for a Successful Family" stating that "by and large our young people do not know either the importance or the value of honest labor".

Rogers did not originate the quote and did not claim to have originated it. Instead, he was citing almost verbatim a bit of anti-Soviet propaganda that had circulated in many magazines in the early 1960's. The quote appeared before that in the Congressional Record of 1958, where they were appended to the record by congressman Bruce Alger. Alger had borrowed the words from Gerald L. K. Smith, who had written them first in his magazine, The Cross and the Flag. Since the quote was attributed to Rogers in 2009, it has been regularly attributed to him; however, Rogers was essentially quoting Smith at the time.
