FFF Again

From a recent edition of the Email Update from the Future of Freedom Foundation:

Wednesday, July 15, 2009
A man has freedom as far as he shapes his life according to his own plans. A man whose fate is determined by the plans of a superior authority, in which the exclusive power to plan is vested, is not free in the sense in which the term "free" was used and understood by all people until the semantic revolution of our time brought about a confusion of tongues.
— Ludwig von Mises, “
The Individual in Society” [1952]
