“The difficulty with the libertarian vision is that it has blinders on. Utterly transfixed by the virtues of the marketplace, it neglects other social orders. Rarely mentioned are the moral imperatives required by commercial societies. Also left out is the impact of social roles. As to the realities of family and hierarchy, they are almost silent. The family is not their concern, except to indicate that it too should be free, while hierarchy is apt to be treated superficially.”

Verantwoording bij Popper:

“I am inclined to think that rulers have rarely been above the average, either morally or intellectually, and often below it. It appears to me madness to base all our political efforts upon the faint hope that we shall be successful in obtaining excellent, or even competent, rulers. If that is granted, then we must ask whether political thought should not face from the beginning the possibility of bad government; whether we should not prepare for the worst leaders and hope for the best. [I]t forces us to replace the question: Who should rule? by the new question: How can we so organize political institutions that bad or incompetent rulers can be prevented from doing too much damage? ” Karl Popper (1974:121,122): The Open Society and Its Enemies (vol.I)

“In the long march from socialism to neo-liberalism, it is hardly a surpise to find that Popper was at his most interesting when he tried to combine the two.” Katrina Forrester (2012:42): Toqueville anticipated me
